We have provided £3.3 billion via the National Health Service (NHS) to facilitate timely hospital discharges over the pandemic, including £478 million this winter. The NHS is working with local authorities and partners to ensure that medically fit patients can be discharged as soon as possible.

The national discharge taskforce has facilitated a national conversation about how to drive progress and support regional and local system arrangements, including in Nottinghamshire, to bring a renewed focus to reducing discharge delays in a sustainable way.
