HomeLink Healthcare is a clinician-led organisation that has been providing Hospital at Home services since 2016. We currently deliver early supported discharge (ESD) and discharge to assess (D2A) pathways for NHS Trusts across England.
Early Supported Discharge (ESD) and Discharge to Assess (D2A) enable the accelerated discharge of patients to the place they call home rather than being on a hospital ward. Patients who meet the criteria can go home earlier than they otherwise would to recover at home.
ESD patients are assessed for their post-hospital care whilst they are in hospital.
D2A patients are discharged from hospital and their assessments take place at home.
ESD and D2A are suitable for patients with almost all medical conditions.
As with all of our services, the features of our ESD and D2A services include:
