Chief executive praises our new service in Dorset following many messages of thanks

One of our newly commissioned services has received so many messages of thanks that the trust chief executive has singled it out for praise.

Hospital discharge family advice and support services in Dorset County Hospital have been praised in the trust’s chief executive bulletin, stating:

“Messages of thanks and praise have been received from patients, relatives, staff and other organisations for … The Care Home Selection team at Dorset County Hospital for supporting patients discharges from the Stroke Unit.”

Our service in Dorset was launched at the start of February. We have recently expanded our work on the south coast, additionally commencing a service in Bournemouth in January. This is in addition to our longstanding and very well regarded hospital discharge service in Southampton.

Susan Adams, CHS Healthcare Regional Manager (south), commented: “We are very pleased to receive this excellent feedback so soon after our service commenced in Dorset. The service is managed by our very experienced business manager Melissa Allin and we have really strong teams in place in both Dorset and Bournemouth, as this feedback shows.”
