Leaving the hospital

We will begin to talk to you about arranging your discharge as soon as possible after your admission.

After the doctor says you can go home, there may be a wait whilst the final arrangements are made, for example you may have to wait for medicine from the pharmacy.

On the day of discharge, beds should be vacated by 11am. Anyone who needs to wait for medication, transport or someone to collect them will be asked to sit in the discharge lounge on F level.

Please make sure you have organised for someone to take you home as transport is the responsibility of you and your relatives.
