Discharge planning starts as soon as the person is admitted to hospital. It is important to let the hospital staff knows as early as possible if they will require support at home. We work with discharge coordinators (or ward care coordinator) to coordinate the planning process and we take over from the day they leave hospital so that they are not alone.
When you are medically well, we will work with you and your family/carers so you can return home from hospital as soon as you are safe to do so.
We will discuss this with everyone involved prior to your discharge date, and will include all appropriate community services to make sure you are well supported once you leave hospital.
