Healthwatch England recently published a report reviewing a new hospital discharge policy, called ‘Discharge to Assess’ (D2A), to assess how it was working for patients, their carers and healthcare professionals. More information can be found at: www.healthwatch-centralbedfordshire.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/HW-Eng-report.-Hospital-discharge.pdf.
Locally, Healthwatch Central Bedfordshire (HWCB) have developed a survey to enable them to gain feedback from patients who have been discharged from a local hospital during the COVID period.
If you have been discharged from hospital in the last 12-15 months, we would encourage you to take a look at and consider completing this survey via: www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/Discharge2Assess/ If you would prefer to receive a paper copy of the survey, please email: Info@healthwatchcentralbedfordshire.org.uk or telephone the HWCB office on: 0300 303 8554.
The deadline for returning the survey is 28th May 2021.
