Discharge from Hospital of Children in Care Protocol

In Gloucestershire, we are committed to ensuring that all children who leave hospital have a safe destination that has been planned by professionals and in consultation with parents and carers. As there has been an increase in the numbers of *Children in Care, it is vital that professionals have the following:

  •  A common understanding about what it means for a Child to be in Care.
  •  A clear understanding of their own contribution to safeguarding and promoting the health of Children in Care.
  •  A clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities of other professionals involved.
