This is one of a suite of case studies designed to increase awareness of schemes to move healthcare closer to home. The Discharge to Assess (D2A) service enables patients to be discharged earlier from acute inpatient wards by co-ordinating care in alternative settings. Important features include the trusted assessment between health and social care, in-house reablement and rehabilitation, and care co-ordinators to support patients and their families throughout the discharge process.
