Overview
This framework has been developed to support hospital discharges for adults and streamline the transition to prevent re-admissions to hospital. The service will assist any patients who have been deemed medically fit/stable for acute discharge by the discharge coordinator to either of the two destinations which are their usual place of residence or an appropriate community setting which can meet the individual's needs.

The framework has been split into three separate lots which are the following:
• Lot 1 - Discharge to Assess Services
• Lot 2 - Third Party Brokerage
• Lot 3 - Medical Care at Home
