Please read guidance on designated settings for people discharged to a care home for further information on discharging people who are likely to be infectious with COVID-19 from hospital to a care home.
This document sets out how health and care systems can ensure that people:
- are discharged safely from hospital to the most appropriate place
- continue to receive the care and support they need after they leave hospital
It replaces Coronavirus (COVID-19) hospital discharge service requirements published on 19 March 2020.
