Each hospital will have its own discharge policy based on guidance from the Government. You can request a copy of the hospital’s discharge policy from the ward manager or from the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) department of the hospital.
You should start your discharge planning as soon as you’re admitted to hospital. If you’re thinking of using our live-in care service to help speed up your discharge you need to let the hospital staff know as early as possible.
A discharge coordinator (or ward care coordinator) should be available to coordinate the planning process. They will act as a key person for you to contact to find out what the discharge plans are.
