Guidance: needs assessments on hospital discharge

Care Quality Commission has published guidance on readmission of people to care homes after hospital stays.

It is in response to concerns that care home providers will not readmit people after periods in hospital without conducting full, in person assessments of need.

The CQC best practice guidance clarifies the legal requirements and applies equally to community adult social care services.
