Discharge

We want to help ensure that your transition from hospital is smooth and safe – whether you are going home, to another health care facility or a nursing home.

Discharge is at 9.30 am

Discharge planning

This is an important part of your treatment and begins when you are admitted, and includes how you will get home, coping during recovery, and managing your ongoing health care. Find out more about preparing to leave hospital
