Leaving hospital after a long or short stay can be a confusing and concerning time - particularly if your hospital stay was unplanned and due to an emergency admission. Our Leaving Hospital guide has been created to help you, your loved ones or carers, be fully prepared for the days, weeks and months that lie ahead, as you recover at home or elsewhere.

You’ll find important information about your hospital discharge and those involved in your care following your hospital stay, as well as helpful guides to help you plan to make your return home as easy and comfortable as it can be.
