Leaving hospital

If you are leaving hospital you may need extra support to help you get better or to live at home independently. 

Hospital discharge schemes

When you leave hospital you can get help and support with tasks such as 

  • collecting prescriptions
  • shopping
  • light domestic chores
  • preparing your home before you are discharged.

Home from Hospital food packs

If you are leaving hospital you will be able to order a food hamper which will be delivered alongside your regular meals at home to help you during the first few days at home.

See our Home from Hospital hamper leaflet [PDF] for more information. 

Care and support assessment

If you think you might be eligible for care and support from us visit our Care and Support in Nottinghamshire page for more information. You will need to have a care and support assessment to find out what type of support you need.
