Many hospitals have for years tried to introduce nurse-led discharge but the evidence suggests this has not been entirely successful. Projects have failed due to lack of engagement from staff, failure to monitor outcomes and lack of sustainability. This article describes the early stages of the introduction of nurse/midwife-led discharge at the Heart of England Foundation Trust, which attempted to address these issues.
