Going into and leaving hospital
Before you leave hospital
Hospital staff should contact Adult Social Care to arrange a discharge assessment. This is so they can find out what help you need when you go home.
You'll be involved in the assessment and agree a care and support plan together.
This should include things like:
- treatment and care when you get home
- who's in charge of your care and how to contact them
- when and how often you need care
