St Joseph’s healthcare doesn’t stop at the time that you are discharged…it continues until your recovery is complete.
When you're ready to go home you will be given all the information you need and if you have any concerns we are just at the other end of the phone.
Our involvement in your recovery continues after you have left hospital. Your consultant will give you expert personalised information and your nursing team will take time to answer any questions you may have.
Your recovery and rehabilitation will be supported, both before and after surgery, by our team of expert physiotherapists. They will work with you, providing advice on pain management and the best exercises to follow to gain the best outcomes.
We believe that St Joseph’s should be providing an end-to-end healthcare experience, which assists your preparation for treatment, steers you through your treatment with the least possible anxiety and in your aftercare period we work with you to achieve complete recovery at the earliest point.
This is what we regard as 'bespoke' care. If you are worried or concerned about anything come back and see us, at no extra cost, subject to our terms and conditions, within 28 days.
It's important that you read the information we give you when its time to go home after your operation. If you have any questions please call us, especially if you have concerns about medication, wound care or possible rare complications such as infection, blood clots, DVT, bleeding or nausea.
