What happens to vulnerable people leaving hospital or care homes?

This week Healthwatch England launched a special Inquiry into unsafe discharge on Channel 4 news. Channel 4 will be running a series of special reports into hidden voices; looking into what happens to vulnerable people leaving hospital or care homes. The first report concentrated on homeless people but we will also be looking into the elderly and those with mental health problems.

Healthwatch Lewisham would like to hear from anyone who has a personal experience or that of a family member being discharged from a hospital, care home or secure mental health setting. Email us at info@healthwatchlewisham.co.uk
