Realistic treatment goals will be set together with you and your family in order to facilitate a safe discharge to either your home, an alternative residence or for further rehabilitation.
Our aim is to discharge patients in a safe and timely manner, providing appropriate equipment and on-going therapy as required. Therapists have close links with community services to ensure patients receive the appropriate on-going physiotherapy they require after being discharge from the ward. There are close links between the acute wards and the adult respiratory team (ART) in the community, which helps provide a seamless transition for respiratory patients.
