Postoperative Care

Our post-operative care is usually planned in advance of your hospital admission. This ensures that every element of your care package is organised to commence from the moment that you are discharged from hospital.

Transport

As part of our hospital to home service, we will support you with your transfer from hospital, making sure you feel comfortable at all times. We can arrange for a Nurse, Healthcare Assistant or Support Worker to meet you at the hospital and, where required, can organise transport on your behalf.

Equipment

We can liaise with the hospital Discharge team to ensure that any required equipment has been installed in your home, for example hoisting equipment. In addition, we will ensure that a full risk assessment is carried out in your home to make sure it is completely safe for your return.

Training

We ensure that your Carers have received bespoke training in preparation for your discharge from hospital.

Rapid Emergency Response

Should you need us to respond quickly to an alternative plan of discharge,, our service can often commence within 48 hours of your initial enquiry. We work alongside the multidisciplinary team to facilitate your safe and stable return home.
