During your hospital stay

During your hospital stay

You should be made as comfortable as possible. For example, if you have a wheelchair, you should have enough space so that you can move to it from the bed.

You should also be offered help with communication if you need it (including the use of an interpreter). In addition, you should be able to follow your usual daily routines as much as possible.

Your carer should be made welcome and the hospital should make any necessary adjustments for them.

You should be given the name of the person who will be responsible for coordinating your discharge. They will be the person you and your family or carer will work with to plan your move out of hospital.

Questions you or your carer might want to ask

  • Who is the main point of contact for me and my family?
