When you go into hospital

When you go into hospital

People who are caring for you should explain why you need to go into hospital and how long you are likely to be there. They should talk with you and your family or carer about the types of care on offer.

You should also be told the name of the person who will be your main contact during your hospital stay and how often you can expect to see them.

Questions you or your carer might want to ask

  • Who will be involved in my care?

  • How long will I be in hospital?
