Hospital support services continue

Last changed: Friday 15 May, 2020

Our services that support vulnerable patients aged over-55 when they leave hospital are still running.

The free Home from Hospital services in the Bradford district and North Yorkshire ease a patient’s return home, help them to rebuild confidence and independence, and aim to prevent hospital readmission.

Home from Hospital is still taking referrals from professionals in the hospitals, community hospitals, and social care during the coronavirus pandemic. Residents in North Yorkshire can also refer themselves. 

The teams contact clients by phone and try to ensure the people they work with are safe and have their immediate needs, such as shopping, met. They refer clients to statutory and local voluntary sector services if required.

To contact Home from Hospital services in North Yorkshire call 0300 365 4600 or fill out a referral form. To contact Home from Hospital in the Bradford district call 01274 531377.

We obviously can’t go into hospitals at the moment, but we’ve adapted and can still be there for people.
