Hospital 2 Home pack launched26th October 2012
The Care and Support Minister Norman Lamb has launched the Hospital 2 Home resource pack, which has been created to assist elderly people coming home from hospital.
At the National Children and Adult Services Conference Mr Lamb said: "We recognise that any delay in being able to leave hospital after treatment is distressing for patients and costly to the NHS. People need to be able to return to a home that is safe, warm and meets their needs, and this is particularly important in the case of older people. In order to achieve this health, housing and social care must work in partnership."
