Big plans for the care we provide

Stockton Council's web-based services (including website) will be unavailable on Saturday 18 November due to essential maintenance. Apologies for any inconvenience caused

Recovering from an illness or accident / returning from a stay in hospital

support for older people

When you are discharged from hospital we will ensure that, if you are eligible to receive social care services, you will receive the help you need.

Before people who require social care support are discharged from hospital, an assessment will be undertaken to ensure that what is needed is available. If you cannot go home, there are other options that we can advise about.

If you would like some help whilst in hospital, the Patient Advice Liaison Service (PALs) will provide confidential, on the spot, advice and support to help you sort out any concerns you may have about the NHS care you receive.
