While Covid-19 has thrown much of society into disarray and caused monumental damage to hospitals, healthcare workers and their patients – in healthcare, there have been some positive changes. One of these is in the altered attitudes toward hospitals and home-based care. Another is in the rapid rollout of crucial services that ease pressure on hospitals and make for better patient experiences.
At HomeLink Healthcare, we believe it is essential that these changes remain – pandemic or not.
HomeLink Healthcare were pleased to partner with The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust to create a harmonious Discharge to Assess service to improve patient flow in their wards and reduce capacity challenges. Set up and deployed in just four weeks, for patients, that meant we could get many of them back home for Christmas.
