Information, Advice & Guidance (IAG)

'There's no place like home' for a quicker recovery and to ease the pressure on local hospital services

Senior clinicians across Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent are appealing for families to help reduce the pressure on struggling services by supporting patients to return home from hospital as soon as they are ready.

Patients staying longer than necessary in hospital have added to the strain on A&E departments, which are already experiencing increased demand. This has caused even longer delays for patients who arrive requiring a bed.

Doctors are advising families and carers that going home once medically fit to do so has also proven to be better for the patient.
