Hospital Discharge Support

services

We are excited to be able to launch this new service to support patients once they are discharged from hospital.

Wherever possible we will visit the patient whilst they are still in hospital (Countess of Chester and Ellesmere Port) to arrange for appropriate support on returning home as well as offering up to 6 weeks support once they are at home.

Home visits and/or telephone calls will be conducted within two working days, providing the individual with reassurance and practical support.  Support can include shopping, collection of prescriptions, dog walking and lending an ear as we understand that returning home from a hospital stay can be difficult.
To make a referral:

or phone 0300 666 0003
Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm (last referral at 3pm)

To benefit from this service patients must be over 65 years old and live in the Cheshire West and Chester district.  The service is open to new and existing Snow Angels users.
