After your treatment
What after care can I expect when I leave hospital?
On departure you should be given information about what you can expect to experience and the aftercare you should be receiving. Please make sure you ask about this and what signs to look out for that mean you should contact your GP or other NHS service. It also very extremely important that you fully understand your medication and how long to take it for. If you are unclear, please make sure to ask.
If you left hospital less than 48 hours ago and you have concerns, please contact the hospital ward or department that you were discharged from for advice. They can be contacted via the hospital switchboard on 0113 2433144.
You can access social service assistance for adults from the following number: 0113 2224401.
