In July 2020 Healthwatch England, in partnership with the Care Quality Commission, launched the #BecauseWeAllCare campaign. 

As part of this year-long campaign the hospital discharge survey was launched for one month, starting in July and finishing in August 2020. 

This report provides a summary of:

  • What worked well and what the key issues were that the public faced when being discharged from hospital because of COVID-19
  • If Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Trust Foundation were able to meet the targets set within the guidance
