Discharge from hospital

The ward staff aim to ensure that your discharge either to your own home, or to a new home, has been planned safely and with your involvement.
Discharge lounge

The discharge lounge is a comfortable, staffed area where patients can wait for transport home once they no longer require the level of nursing care offered on an in-patient ward. Beds are provided for patients to wait, but in the majority of cases only chairs are provided. Patients can be collected from these areas by family members or transport services to take them home.

The discharge lounge is located on Ward 18 on the ground floor of the James Paget University Hospital.
