When You Leave
Discharge from hospital
Before you leave hospital, please make sure you have the following:
- a discharge letter
- all personal belongings
- all personal x-rays
- all current medications
- follow-up appointment requirements
Please check with your doctor regarding your ability to drive yourself home upon leaving hospital. We recommend that all patients refrain from driving for 24 hours after discharge and organise for someone to accompany them home and stay with them for 24 hours.
If you have any excessive pain or are generally concerned about your condition after you leave hospital please contact your specialist, your GP or ring the hospital directly.
On your way out, please see staff at the Reception to complete any discharge information.
