Hospital discharge service

 

We started our work to support carers on Keats and Kennet Wards in Kingston Hospital in December 2014. You will find our support worker on these Wards  every Monday morning and Tuesday afternoon (currently suspended due to Covid).

We have identified and spoken to many, many, carers since then. The type of support we have provided, ranges from general information and support for carers, information about how to access different benefits, advice on LPA, the financial impact of going into a care home as well as making referrals for assessment with the relevant local authorities. 

Our service has received a positive response from carers  and we are looking at extending the support service to other wards.
