On the day you leave
- If you don’t have someone who can collect you, the hospital’s discharge team will make transport arrangements with you.
- You will probably go into the discharge lounge, where nurses will make sure you are comfortable and have all the medicine you need, before you leave hospital
- If you need follow-up medicine, we will ask you to contact your home doctor. We will give you a letter to explain your treatment needs.
There are many services across Sussex that can help support your return home or to another care setting while you recover. We also have a checklist that might be helpful to review before you leave hospital to ensure you have things in place when leaving hospital.
