This was an unexpected visit by Authorised Representatives of Healthwatch South Gloucestershire.  It was part of a wider programme of work examining the  3R's - recovery, rehabilitation and reablement

Key findings included:

  • Very clean, bright and cheerful
  • Enthusiastic and dedicated staff
  • Delays in patient discharge are already occurring

The delays in discharge follow a change of provider in the health system providing aftercare and follow-on support.
