Integrated Manager (Discharge Management), Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership
Lynne Morman qualified as a social worker in Dundee in 1995, and has worked in various local authorities with a range of service user groups in the years since then. In 2003 Lynne started her first management role in the Hospital Social Work team, and this started her relationship with discharge planning, and the management of capacity and flow within hospital settings.
Since Health and Social Care Integration, Lynne has managed both health and social work staff within the Integrated Discharge Hub based in Ninewells Hospital Dundee.
As the lead for discharge improvement across the Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership, she has developed pathways which shift the balance of care away from institutional settings and ensure service users do not remain in hospital when they could be assessed and supported in their own homes.
