Discharged From Hospital - Nantwich and Rural Care Community

Discharged From Hospital

Sometimes it can be difficult to know how to reach out for help if you need it.

In Nantwich and Rural we are very lucky to have some fantastic volunteer agencies where you can access support when back home from hospital :

 

If you are local to Wrenbury then Wrenbury Together can help you in many different ways, including with a new hot meals service.

Please click here for full details of Wrenbury Together, or click on the logo to jump to their Facebook page.

 

For those living in and around Nantwich there is the volunteering group of Nantwich Buddies.

Click on the Buddies logo above for a FULL introduction, or visit their Facebook Page here.

 

In Audlem, we have the wonderful ADCA (Audlem and District Community Action).

For a full list of ADCA’s services please click on the logo.

 

All of the above volunteer organisations can provide help with transportation needs to your local GP Practice.

If you need assistance with transport to a follow-up hospital appointment, then you can request the West Midlands Ambulance Patient Transport Service. For full details of this non-emergency ambulance service please click here.

 

Another source of support is the Cheshire East Support At Home (CESAH) Service. This is a free service, available for 2 weeks, in association with the Red Cross :

In our Care Community we now have a brand new alternative to conventional bus services with a service called go-too.

This is aimed at mobilising those who are able to get out and about but who are unable to access regular, timetabled public transport options. This might be a very important service for those recently discharged from hospital, living in rural areas, who would like to be independent.

This new travel service takes you where you want to go, when you want to go…
…to the shops, to meet friends, to health appointments and more, with other people going in your direction. Virtual bus stops will allow you to be picked up from close to home. It might also enable friends to visit you.

Please click on the image above to jump to ALL the information you need on how it works and a list of frequently asked questions. Essentially go-too is a transport-on-demand bus service operating within the boundary of the map shown below. You can travel anywhere within the dark green zone, or between the dark green zone and Nantwich in either direction. So, the only journey not permitted would be one solely contained within the light green zone of Nantwich (as regular bus services apply here).
