Chair: Pratima Solanki, Adult Care Services, People Department, LB Croydon

Membership: This network is open to representatives from Local Authorities, CCGs, Acute Trusts and Community Provider Trusts in London to support implementation of the discharge element of the A&E improvement plan


Key Aims for 2017/18

  • Focus on simple discharge – support social care engagement in the establishment of a systematic process to review the reasons for any inpatient stay that exceeds six days and monitor progress using the ‘stranded patient metric’ by November 2016;
  • Embed ‘home first: discharge to assess’ ways of working, based on forthcoming guidance and best-practice to be published by NHSE in Sep 2017. Local leaders to establish which acute trusts operate a discharge to assess scheme and establish schemes, or implement plans to increase numbers on D2A pathway by March 2017;
  • Embed ‘trusted assessor’ ways of working by identifying where ‘trusted assessor’ arrangements could remove any delays. Agree ways of working and design new systems and streamlined documentation; formalising these arrangements where necessary and helpful. Roll-out by Jan/Feb 2017;
  • Implement recently-published policy on supporting patients’ choices to avoid long hospital stays – adapt local policies and ensure agreement and roll-out by Nov 2016;
  • Reduce the number of NHS CHC screenings and full assessments taking place in an acute location, based on known best practice, by November 2016. Improve local intelligence about CHC delays with improved data collections and CCG accountability;
  • Increase proportion of patients receiving RRR (rehabilitation, recovery and reablement – a form of intermediate care) care in home or community settings;
  • Reduce the overall number of delayed transfers of care and associated lost bed days.
