The Community Care (Delayed Discharges etc.) Act 2003 set out how local authorities and health trusts should work together to minimise delayed discharge rates. The Care Act 2014 replaced this piece of legislation; as one of the aims of the Care Act is to ensure that people do not remain in hospital when they no longer require care that can only be provided in an acute trust.
