Delayed discharge occurs when the patient ready for discharge cannot leave hospital (after 6 weeks) because the other necessary care, support or accommodation for them is not available. Aberdeen City Council and NHS Grampian have worked together to develop the full range of care packages needed to support hospital discharge, enabling the target of zero delayed discharges to be met in 2009. However, we need to make further sustained improvement in order to maintain the rate of zero delayed discharge. Through projects such as Intermediate Care Programme NHS Grampian and partners are striving to retain people in their own home, independently or with support, while also having appropriate residential care capacity available for use as and when required.

Life expectancy at birth, like most statistics, is an estimate which is subject to a margin of error. The period covered by the SOA 2008 report is too short to note any significant changes in life expectancy. The most recently reported figures suggest that life expectancy for both males and females in Aberdeen City is close to the Scottish average. However, data from the 2004 Health and Wellbeing profiles, available at postcode sector level, reveal the trend for decreasing life expectancy with increasing deprivation.

There has been a reduction from 156 deaths from coronary heart disease per 100,000 population in 2006 to 146 per 100,000 in 2008.  The rate of early deaths from heart disease is lower than the Scottish average at both Grampian and City level although the rate for Aberdeen City is markedly higher than for Grampian as a whole. Data from the 2004 Health and Wellbeing profiles, available at postcode sector level, identified a correlation between areas of deprivation and higher rates of early deaths from heart disease.
