Hospital Discharge Pressure20th July 2022
Our hospitals and staff are facing ongoing pressures, particularly around delayed discharges and how that is affecting our ability to treat other patients.
We currently have a high number of patients in our hospitals who are fit for discharge.
We are urging that if any of those patients are your loved one that you would work with us to help facilitate their discharge.
By doing so that will release beds that will allow us to admit some sick patients from our Emergency Departments.
By discharging those patients that are fit we will be able to admit those sick patients to beds.
We would urge you to try and help us with this.
