Working together to support you home

on . Posted in News

Piktochart SuH imageIn Solihull we are improving the way we support people leaving hospital (from Solihull and Birmingham Heartlands). Some people stay in hospital longer than they need and it isn’t good for them. We want to ensure that people can return home safely with the right support in place for them, their families and carers. Health and social care teams in the community and in the hospitals are working together in Solihull to make this happen. This new approach is called SupportUHome.

Jenny Wood, Director of Adult Care and Support at Solihull Council and Jonathan Brotherton, Director of Operations at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust are leading SupportUHome. Below they explain why this new approach is needed, how it will make a difference and celebrate an early SupportUHome success story.
