Our tool is currently still being developed but we are keen to receive feedback on what works and what parts could be improved; this is why you may be asked to fill in a short survey, it will only take a few moments of your time but it is invaluable information to us.
If you feel, having used the tool, that there are services in your area that would be helpful for people being discharged from hospital but we have not included them, then please let us know using the form below so that we can update our database.

Returning home after a stay in hospital can often highlight the need for support services at home that you may not have thought of, or needed, before.
Sometimes a hospital stay is unexpected and arrangements will need to be made at short notice, however often admissions are planned and services can be prepared well ahead of time.
In either case it is a good idea to be aware of what help is available locally and consider who you might contact if you were no longer able to perform daily tasks such as cleaning, cooking or driving.
This toolkit provides information on the various forms of assistance that might be available in your area and identifies organisations that may offer these services.
Should you need any additional information or advice then you may wish to speak to an adviser on 0800 377 7070. We are open 9am – 5pm, Monday to Friday.
