Enhance

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

You can find out more about Enhance by visiting Leeds Older People’s Forum website here.
