Enhance Programme (February 2022)

Leeds Older People’s Forum, on behalf of the Forum Central Partnership, has launched the Enhance Programme in partnership with Leeds Community Healthcare Trust.

Enhance’s main aims will be to support safe and sustainable discharge from hospital and neighbourhood teams into a secure home environment and to link Neighbourhood Teams with third sector organisations to enhance capacity in both sectors and avoid both delayed discharges and readmissions.
