Cardiff and Vale University Health Board’s Integrated Discharge Team has been extended to include social workers, social work assistants and a team of Discharge Support Officers in partnership with Age Connects. The project, funded by the Intermediate Care Fund, aims to support discharge planning on medical wards across the health board. An initial pilot has begun in Llandough Hospital and is already showing positive impact: 229 referrals have been received and 87 social work allocations have been facilitated.
