When you leave

Discharge arrangements

The nursing staff on your ward will discuss with you plans for your discharge from hospital and any continuing care needs you may have.  Please make sure you have suitable clothes to change into ready for when you leave hospital.

Volunteers from The British Red Cross “Home From Hospital” service can sometimes provide practical help and support to enable patients to regain their confidence and independence. This service is available for anyone over the age of eighteen years and includes tasks such as shopping, preparing light meals and collecting prescriptions. The service is free and information is available by your bedside.
