Cheshire & Merseyside Health and Care Partnership recognise that the skill, energy and compassion of the VCFSE sector is proving vital in keeping our communities strong and safe. We also recognise the huge pressure that this is putting on the sector’s staff, volunteers & budgets.

One of the areas that we would like to find out more about is how the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) sector can support the process around discharging people from hospital.

This will help us formulate a view about whether we need to try and influence for greater investment in this area and what additional capacity may be needed to manage the additional demand on these types of services.

This piece of work is being led by staff from Halton and St Helen’s VA and CVS Cheshire East who have been seconded to work for the CM Health and Care Partnership.

We would appreciate your support by completing the following short survey – https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CM_Out_of_Hospital
