Being discharged from our services

What happens when someone is discharged from our services

When people are ready to be discharged from our services there will be a discharge CPA meeting between the person and those involved in their care. That  meeting could include family and/ or carers, where appropriate, to ensure that everyone is happy with the discharge.

Arrangements could include being referred back to the person’s GP, being referred to a different service, being referred back into the community with support from community teams, or third party organisations, or a range of other options.

Just as each person is different, so will the arrangements made for their discharge differ.

However, regardless of the specific details, every service user will be supported through their discharge process.

We encourage people to form support networks and connect socially with others, and we try and ensure that when a service user is discharged that they feel adequately supported.

Staying involved

Both during and after their stay with us, people who use our services and their carers,  have the opportunity to be involved with decisions not only about their care, but Trust decisions as well.
