Learn how to support yourself after treatment and during any rehabilitation.

Going home from hospital

The most important thing when you come home from hospital is to take care of yourself.

Follow any instructions given to you by your specialist or discharge nurse carefully and contact them as soon as possible if you’re unsure or if you don’t feel ‘right’.

If you are not provided with information, or misplace it heading home, call the hospital and ask for information.

On discharge you may also want to know:

  • If you should make follow appointments with doctor or specialist
  • Do you need follow up therapy? This may be covered in your follow up appointment after surgery
  • When can I drive, work and complete physical activities?
  • Can I get a medical certificate for my employer?
