Since Hobbs started at Willow Court in September 2020 as part of the Discharge to Assess (D2A) service we have had over 350 patients come through the door! For one patient to return home requires close working partnership of 4 different providers: Hobbs team, Willow Court nursing and carers team (Hants County Council), Social Workers (Adult Services) and the medical team led by NHS Consultant Geriatrician Dr Oswell from Kingfisher ward at Andover War Memorial hospital (Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust).
If someone needs equipment for home then Equipment Stores also become involved. When you consider how many people there are in each team and how much information needs to be shared then it really is quite remarkable how patients are managed and how difficult it is to share the right information at the right time, for each team needs. D2A at Willow Court is a pivotal service for patients to recover and be assessed for either return to home, new housing or residential/nursing care.
