Discharge from hospital

Pinderfieldfs A&E with ambulance outside

We are working closely with patients and their families to discharge patients as quickly as possible once they are medically fit to leave hospital-level care.

We currently have a number of patients in our beds who don’t require hospital care. We understand it can be complex making sure patients have the right support in place out of hospital. Our staff are on hand to advise and we are working closely with our local authority partners to support people in this situation. However, it is not possible for patients to remain in our hospitals that don’t need hospital-level care because we do not have sufficient capacity, especially given the high numbers of patients we also have coming into our hospitals. So we would ask patients and families to work with us around discharge, and would encourage you to ask questions about when you might be able to go home throughout a hospital stay.

Thank you for your understanding.
