Hospital Discharge Wellbeing Caller

Wellbeing callers call people recently discharged from our local hospitals to check if they have any concerns related to their hospital discharge, and if so to report those issues back to hospital discharge team.

They also take the opportunity to check on the patient's wellbeing, how well supported they are, and if they need any help from the council or other community services.
