Help When you Leave Hospital
Support to live independently when you leave hospital
The intermediate care team can help you avoid admission to hospital when you’re unwell. If you do have to go into hospital we'll work with hospital staff to arrange your discharge and rehabilitation plans.
How we work
We work with you for a short period of time, in your home or at a rehabilitation unit and help you with things like:
- Improving your confidence
- Living safely and independently at home
- Preventing admissions to hospitals or care homes
Who's in our team?
- A medical consultant
- Nursing staff
- A physiotherapist
- An occupational therapist
- Rehabilitation staff
- A pharmacy technician
The team’s assessments and services are free. There may be charges for other services.
If we arrange other services, we’ll check your finances to see how much you have to pay. We’ll also check you’re getting all the benefits you’re entitled to.
If you’re in hospital, your nurses, therapists or doctors can help you decide if our services are right for you. If you live at home you should discuss your needs with a GP, district nurse or social worker.
