Help returning home from hospital

You can get support and care from the British Red Cross when returning home from hospital.

They can collect you and make sure you have everything you need for your first 24 to 72 hours back at home. They’ll also provide practical and emotional support, whether that’s stocking the fridge, feeding the cat or a just cup of tea and chat. They may then provide up to 12 weeks of support to help you recover as quickly as possible.

NHS Website

The NHS website is the online ‘front door’ to the NHS. It is the country’s biggest health website and gives all the information you need to make choices about your health. You can find information about hospitals, GPs and dentists and urgent care. As well as basic contact details, you can also find feedback from other people about what they think about these services. It’s not just limited to NHS information. You can also find information about other services in your area (often provided by charities) that can help you with conditions from Alzheimers through to weight loss.
