NHS England and partners have published a series of quick guides to support local health and care systems. The guides provide practical tips, case studies and links to useful documents, which can be used to implement solutions to commonly experienced issues. Use the information to manage upcoming winter pressures and plan for 2016 and beyond.
This guide has been produced by stakeholders [including hospital discharge teams; local authority adult services commissioners; continuing healthcare commissioners; independent care sector providers, including voluntary and housing sectors; patients; and carers] and provides:
• A checklist for local areas to use to identify areas for improvement;
• Information on existing solutions to common problems, including links to useful resources;
• A template policy and template patient letters to be adopted locally
