Discharge Process

What happens when I need to go home?
You will be advised by your medical team when you are ready to go home. But to be prepared it is important to ensure you have arranged a lift home, you have all your belongings and that you have any prescriptions or letters of referral that you may require after discharge.

Where possible the Hospital try to have patients home by 11am in the morning, if you cannot get a lift home at this time you will be directed to the Hospital’s Transition Lounge, this is to enable other inpatients access to beds as soon as possible.

Please note the Hospital cannot provide a laundry service so please make suitable arrangements with family / friends

For further information on the discharge process, please read this leaflet.
