COVID-19 HOSPITAL DISCHARGE INFORMATION - It is important that our hospitals are ready to look after people who contract coronavirus (COVID-19) and need hospital care. Due to these pressures, once you no longer need care in hospital, as decided by the health team looking after you, you will be discharged. You will not have a choice over your discharge, but it is always our priority to discharge people to a safe and appropriate place. For more information download the posters below.
