Discharge Planning

What we do

The Discharge (from hospital) Planning are a team of experienced nurses based at Aintree University Hospital.

The team works closely with a multi disciplinary team from the hospital to ensure patients have a timely and appropriate discharge.

The service aims to reduce the time people stay in hospital and discharge them safely back to home and takes account of the individual needs and wishes of the patient, family or identified care giver. If patients are nearing the end of their life we transfer them to a place of their choice so that they can die with dignity.

The service operates Monday - Friday between 08.00- 6.00pm.
