CQC inpatient survey raises concerns about access to support following dischargeCQC inpatient survey raises concerns about access to support following discharge

A CQC survey of inpatients in England, carried out before the pandemic, has raised concerns about access to support following hospital discharge. The survey revealed over a third (40%) of respondents left hospital without printed or written information telling them what they should do or not do after discharge and, of those who were given medication, 44% were not told about the possible side effects to watch out for. It also showed that a third of frail people (and 20% of non-frail people) responding to the survey said that the care and support expected was not available when they needed it after leaving hospital.

UKHCA believes that care and support at home should be an available option for everyone who needs it.
