Think Local Act Personal

Making sure people do not stay in hospital any longer than they need to by beginning to plan what will happen when they leave hospital as soon as they go in, or even before. Hospitals and community services should work together, and should tell you within your first two days in hospital, if possible, when you are likely to go home.
