Early supported discharge (ESD) services aim to allow stroke patients to return home from hospital earlier than usual and receive more rehabilitation in the familiar environment of their own home. The services are provided by teams of therapists and nurses.
The Yorkshire and the Humber SCN have been working with all providers in the region to standardise procedures and ensure all patient care in the region is equitable. The Stroke Team are also working with commissioners and providers where there are no ESD services in place to support the development and commissioning of new services.
Work undertaken to date includes:
Yorkshire & the Humber Early Supported Discharge Workshop - 17th December 2015
