Patient Discharge Services

Reference: SBS/18/AP/RIG/9258

Framework Agreement Description

The Patient Discharge Services Framework has been developed to support hospital discharges for adults and streamline the transition of patients to prevent re-admissions to hospital. The framework for patient discharge is divided into three lots; discharge to assess services, third party brokerage and medical care at home. The framework aims to assist patients who have been deemed medically fit / stable for acute discharge by the discharge coordinator to either a place of residence or an appropriate community setting, which can meet the needs of the individual.
