As part of the work of the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership and working in close coordination with NHS Lothian and City of Edinburgh Council’s Health and Social Care Department, EVOC has secured funding through the Integrated Care fund to deliver the LOOPs Hospital Discharge Support Programme.
EVOC believe that this work will be a first in Scotland, in that it builds a coherent single interface for the Third Sector into the hospital environment, with the support of both Health and Social Care colleagues, and which will see the delivery of an end-to-end service to improve discharge efficiency and supports for older people.
The project works on a number of levels and with a range of people but starts by placing Third Sector staff in key positions – both within the Locality Hub and within the acute hospital Discharge Hub.
We will be hosting a number of engagement events over the course of the next few months to introduce the project and to ensure that we are able to engage the widest range of partners.
The first of these events will be on the 16th of May and will be for Statutory colleagues and National Third Sector providers.
