All of the hospitals provide a 24-hour service. Visiting times differ at each of the hospitals so please contact the relevant hospital reception for more information. All of the hospitals provide inpatient care and some of the hospitals provide day hospital and outpatient services.

What can I expect from my community hospital?

People are admitted to a community hospital when they no longer require the services of an acute hospital. Community hospitals provide active rehabilitation and palliative care, particularly for older people.

There are a range of health care professionals working within the community hospitals. These include registered nurses, healthcare assistants, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, porters, domestic and housekeeping staff together with administration and clerical staff. Volunteers also provide support to the hospitals.

The community hospitals are supported by GPs and gerontologists, who are doctors specialising in the care of older people. They work in close liaison with other community services such as community nurses, intermediate care, community matrons, dieticians, and mental health services.

Our community hospital staff aim to work in partnership with you when planning for the next stages of your care, whether that is your discharge home or to another care setting.

Planning for your discharge will start on the first day of your admission. Staff will agree with you a predicted date of discharge which they will then work to. Plans for your discharge will be agreed in partnership with you, your relatives and carers, members of the multidisciplinary team who are usually responsible for your care and if relevant, other organisations such as social services.

How do I get referred to a community hospital?

If you are living at home then you can be referred to a community hospital by your GP. If you are already in another NHS hospital, then you can be referred by that hospital via a centralised team. You cannot refer yourself to a community hospital. If you are feeling unwell you should contact your GP.
