Patients & Visitors
Staff and the hospital aim for a standard discharge time usually 11am. To help achieve this and to ensure new admissions can be accommodated as soon as possible, you may be asked to wait in the Day Room until all paper work and tests have been completed. Staff will ensure you are comfortable until ready to leave with your family or friend.
On discharge, the following medications will be returned to you:
Correctly labelled items that you are to continue taking.
Non-prescription items that you have purchased.
The following items will not routinely be returned:
Items which have been discontinued as a result of your admission.
Out of date medicines.
Medicines with illegible or missing labels.
See our outpatient appointments page.
