How will I be supported to be discharged from hospital?

Question:
How will I be supported to be discharged from hospital?
Answer:

Once you have finished your hospital treatment we want to help you leave hospital as quickly as possible.

Most people who are discharged from hospital can return home with no ongoing support, or just follow up from their GP if necessary.

If you need ongoing care and support we will try and get you home wherever possible, either with some interim therapy and/or support whilst you recover, or with an ongoing arrangement.

If we can’t get you home safely then we will need to find you a community care bed. This may be temporary for a few weeks or it may become your permanent residence.

Once we offer you care and support, we may ask you to make a swift decision about the care offered to avoid any delays in leaving hospital.
