Helping people to leave hospital as soon as they are medically well enough is massively important, and getting it right means their journey to recovery can begin in the best possible way.

The Caring Steps Together programme has been developed to help health and care professionals provide hospital patients, as well as their families and carers, with extra support before and during their onward care journey.

These resources will help people to understand the hospital discharge process and how to access onward care and support.

The Caring Steps Together programme aims to improve communications around discharge from hospital.

New resources and tools help to explain to patients, families, carers and colleagues working in health and care what will happen before, during and after leaving hospital.
