This project was undertaken to investigate the experience of Discharge to Assess from the perspective of Carers of those admitted to hospital. Our aim is that this insight will guide development and implementation of the D2A programme to maximise safe, successful hospital discharges. This was a joint project between Action for Carers and Healthwatch Surrey.

All local acute trusts and Surrey County Council have provided full written responses to our recommendations from our report Carers’ Experiences of Hospital Discharge.
