Join this participatory meeting to hear about practice and experiences from around the country, and to help decide what action needs to be taken to capitalise on good practice and address challenges.
Around the country there are welcome examples of effective joined-up support to ensure people have access to food when they are discharged from hospital, but evidence indicates that in other places this isn't always the case.
We expect to discuss a range of issues including identifying patients' needs and preferences; communication, information sharing and discharge planning; and knowledge of local services, maximising referrals and supporting community and social enterprise services to thrive.
