Going in and coming out of hospital

Hospital admissions can be planned or they can be emergencies.  This area of the website aims to help with some of the uncertainties and anxieties you might face before, during and after your hospital stay. It suggests ways you can plan ahead for when you return home. It also includes information on what to expect from professionals working in the hospital and in the community.
