Hospital Discharge

The British Red Cross (find out more about them here) is carrying out research on hospital discharge (leaving hospital) in Wales, which seeks to understand the impact of changes made since the start of May 2020, to meet increasing demands on health and social care services. The aim is to learn from the experiences of hospital discharge during this time and ensure the NHS is better prepared to support patients leaving hospital in the future.

As part of this research, the British Red Cross are interested in the experiences of:

  • Patients aged 18 years or over living in Wales who have left hospital following short term treatment of a serious illness or injury (not including maternity services) since the start of May 2020; or
  • Those who look after (or care for) someone who has who have left hospital following short term treatment of a serious illness or injury (not including maternity services) during this time.

If this applies to you, you are invited to take part in an online survey about your experience.

Your link to the survey is www.opinionresearch.co.uk/BRC_Hospital_Discharge_Survey

It should take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and you have until 18th October to take part.
