Integrated Discharge Service holds celebration

Integrated Discharge Service holds celebration
17 December 2018

The Integrated Discharge Service which includes colleagues from PHT, Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, Solent NHS Trust, Hampshire County Council and Portsmouth City Council have been working together to support a new scheme to help get patients home sooner.

The Home First scheme is an approach to help patients who no longer have medical or nursing needs, but still require care, to get home sooner.  

The Integrated Discharge Service held a celebration on the 12th December to recognise all of their hard work over the past month to ensure patients are home in time for Christmas.

Colleagues were nominated for their contribution and were presented with an award by Melloney Poole OBE, Chairman of PHT.
