Patients being discharged

To ensure that all patients who no longer need our hospital care can return to their own homes in a safe and timely manner, we kindly ask that family, friends and carers arrange transport to pick up the patient from hospital when they have been told they can go home.

They should also prepare clothes and shoes for the patient, to make the discharge process easier and quicker.

This helps us ensure beds are available for the numbers of patients we expect to be affected by COVID-19 in the days and week ahead.

Important

Only one relative must enter the hospital and collect their relative from the designated discharge lounge - all others must wait in the car.
