We aim to make your day surgery discharge process as smooth and stress-free as possible.
Our consultant-led discharge process
The process begins from the moment you are admitted. The clinical team will work closely with you to develop a discharge plan that suits your needs and recovery progress.
Before you leave, you will receive a letter for your GP and any necessary information about your treatment. Our in-house pharmacist will provide any medication prescribed by our medical team.
Any medications brought into JACE Medical by you will also be returned. Our clinical team will provide you with both verbal and written discharge instructions, including post-surgery advice to aid your recovery.
Arrange for a family member or friend to accompany you home after discharge and plan for any necessary post-discharge support, especially if you live alone. If you require any specialised services or equipment, including an interpreter, please inform us beforehand.
Our facilities have comfortable lounges for patients to wait in if their transportation is not yet available. Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality of care, and we will do everything in our power to make your discharge process as seamless as possible.
If you anticipate needing additional support, please discuss this with your GP prior to your appointment.
It is important to note that you should not drive home if you have received sedation, anaesthesia, or undergone invasive surgery. You must have a responsible adult accompany you home.
If you have received general anaesthesia, it is recommended to have someone with you at home for at least 24 hours.
