Scotland’s Hospital to Home Service

Recovery after a life-changing event like a stroke, heart attack or chest condition like COPD or Covid-19 doesn’t stop when you leave hospital.

But we’re here to help families across Scotland adjust to the “new normal”, live life to the full again and transition from hospital to home.

Who is the Hospital to Home service for?

Our Hospital to Home service is here to support people across Scotland who are returning home after a stroke or have been discharged from hospital with a chest or heart condition.

If you are living with one of these conditions and need support to live well at home, please give our Advice Line nurses a call on 0808 801 0899 to find out more about accessing our Hospital to Home service.

Our Hospital to Home service is a nationwide network of local support groups, nurses and one-to-one support teams helping you to recover well at home. We’re also here to support your families, loved ones or carers throughout your recovery.
