Wiltshire Enhanced Discharge Services (EDS)

 

Following the successful evaluation of the Hospice at Home 72 hour service by Healthwatch Wiltshire but taking into account the ongoing needs of our patients when admitted to hospital, we have started a rapid discharge service in collaboration with the RUH andĀ funded through the Better Care Plan. This service will be providing up to 24 hours of care, 7 days a week to facilitate timely discharge for Wiltshire end of life patients who are in the RUH. This service can only be accessed through the RUH palliative care team but we are excited about how this service will help more of our patients to leave hospital quicker to be at home with family and friends.
