Integrated Discharge Team

The Integrated Discharge Team or IDT is an integrated multi-disciplinary team of social care professionals, nurses, and discharge trackers who triage patients and provide them with information on accessing services aiming to support their discharge from hospital.

This may include:

  • rehabilitation to be provided in a person’s home or in a care home environment
  • care support as part of a re-ablement care package or domiciliary care
  • provision of nursing and complex healthcare to support the discharge from hospital to their own home, a care home environment or assessment of an alternative suitable discharge destination. 

Referral Process 

All referrals are sent by the hospital staff caring for the patient on the ward.
