The Step‐Down Unit was set up in September 1996 as a joint venture between Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust and Plymouth Community Services NHS Trust. It offered a post‐acute facility for those patients needing a short period of recovery, transfer to another facility such as a nursing home or re‐housing. This paper reports on how the unit was set up and some of the outcomes following its first year.
