Leaving Hospital

Support from discharge

In order to provide you with a safe and swift discharge from hospital, your healthcare team may refer you to the Hospital Social Worker team. The Hospital Social Worker team will complete an assessment based on your needs. The team will then provide you with information, advice and support on the best actions to meet your needs.

If you feel that you require support when leaving hospital, you can also request an assessment. You can do this by making a request to your healthcare team who will make a referral on your behalf.

If you are expecting to find your daily routines difficult at the early stages of your recovery then considering things like what equipment you are able to buy could be the way to make your recovery easier when you return home.

Helping your Recovery

In order to help with your recovery there is a range of support available to you to help you get back to living your life.

If you have additional care and support needs following your stay in hospital, then the Active Recovery team will assess your needs.

They will then organise a care and support package for you prior to you returning home in order ensure you can recover safely.
