Safer Discharge and Service Awareness (for Carers and Acute Staff)

Safer discharge planning and improved information will be offered to patients and carers, by

• Offering clinical and administrative staff training to raise awareness of the information and assistance that carers need to adequately prepare for discharge.

• Providing clinical skills training to carers to help reduce the risk of readmission and raise confidence in their competency to care for their loved ones.

• Creating a new ‘Discharge Guide’ in plain English to provide information on the discharge pathway and offer details of all the carer and discharge support services available locally in Enfield.

For more information, please get in touch with the Enfield Carers Centre (hyperlink to http://www.enfieldcarers.org/) who are providing the training.
