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

NHS has more information about arranging care before you leave hospital.
