Hospital Discharge Guide for carers

Unpaid carers can often experience difficulties when their loved one attends hospital – especially when it’s time for them to be discharged.

As well as our expert Hospital Carer Advisors (working in Surrey’s five main hospitals), you can now also get help from our comprehensive new booklet for unpaid carers, the Hospital Discharge Guide.

The guide explains about how the discharge process should work, what steps happen, which staff and teams have roles, and crucially how you as a carer should be involved at this time. There’s also further help on hospital stays in general, from a carer’s point of view, and more our support, as well as your legal rights.
