After your treatment

When the time is right, we want to make sure your discharge from our services is as stress-free as possible.

We will carefully plan your discharge and will usually meet with you and your carers to make sure everyone is happy with this plan.

We will work with you and other services and organisations to make sure you have the right support at home to help you manage and maintain your health and wellbeing.

There are lots of different ways we can help, such as specialist equipment to help you move around more easily, or personal support with social care. 

Being discharged may mean you’re referred:

  • Back to the care of your GP

  • To a different Trust service

  • To a service provided by other organisation, such as social services.


If you have a long-term condition, or feel you would like additional support, you may benefit from contacting a local support network or group. There are support groups for a wide range of conditions – ask a member of staff about groups in your area. 

If you’ve been discharged from a service and have any concerns about your health and wellbeing, you can speak to your care team, or to your GP.
