Hospital discharge

If you're in hospital and will be unable to return home because of your ill health it may be possible for your home to be adapted to help you to stay there. For more information please see our 'Home adaptations' page. 

If you have no place to return to when you're discharged from hospital, the Housing Options team can assess your housing and support needs and work with you, and any professionals, to ensure accommodation is available for you when you are well enough to leave hospital.

It's important to make contact as soon as possible to allow time for assessments to be completed and accommodation to be identified. The hospital can refer you to the team under the ‘duty to refer’, with your permission.

You can take a look at our self-serve advice tool for more advice.
