100 day discharge challenge

Making a significant difference in facilitating discharge and improving care for patients


The national health and social care discharge taskforce brings together partners from across health and social care to focus on opportunities to improve discharge. In particular, it aims to improve the outcomes for patients who no longer meet the ‘criteria to reside’ so they can be discharged from hospital, cared for in more appropriate settings, and to release much-needed capacity within acute providers.
