Discharge information and follow-up appointments

When you leave the hospital you may need:

  • Specific information or factsheets about your child’s ongoing care
  • A follow up appointment with one of our hospital doctors
  • A discharge summary
  • A referral to a community service.

Please ask your child’s nurse or doctor about any specific needs or questions before you leave the ward, along with a copy of the discharge summary.
