Before you leave

To ensure you have the correct services or equipment to support you when you leave hospital, our nurses will start to plan for your discharge at the time of your admission.

Prior to your admission, you can access information on community services in your area from the Commonwealth Carelink Centre on tel: 1800 052 222.

Our staff are available to work with you to plan your discharge and arrange community support if required.

The Admission and Discharge Manager is also the DVA Liaison Officer at SVPHB.

If you have any concerns regarding your discharge, please let the staff know as soon as possible.
