About us

We are a Christie based team who aim to support current in-patients with complex healthcare and nursing needs in relation to being discharged from hospital: this could be returning home, placement in a nursing home or transfer to another healthcare setting.

We accept referrals from the hospital multi-disciplinary team only.

What we do

  • We will work alongside your clinical teams to help them decide the most appropriate setting for your future care, taking into account your preferred place of care.
  • We may be able to help provide equipment for your home, items such as a hospital bed, pressure mattress and commodes. Equipment is based upon clinical need and eligibility in your local area.
  • We can also liaise with community district nurses and other health workers about your care and discharge.
  • We participate in the assessment processes for NHS Continuing Healthcare.
