The Derbyshire Home from Hospital Service

The Derbyshire Home from Hospital Service provides practical support for vulnerable people leaving hospital, or those living at home but at risk of being admitted.

You can use the service if you live in Derbyshire, or are registered with a Derbyshire GP, and need more support than is available from family or friends.
