SMTN Support After Discharge - Rehabilitation Prescription

Leaving the Major Trauma Centre can be a worrying time for patients and their families whether you are going directly home or transferring for further care and rehabilitation. 

To help with this transition we will provide all patients with contact details for the Major Trauma Team along with a copy of their own individual Rehabilitation Prescription.  

The Rehabilitation Prescription documents key information detailing your injuries, management and ongoing rehabilitation needs. Alongside this is a forecast of expected follow-up from therapists and/or surgical/medical teams who treated you. Additional guidance on dietary advice and how to return to your normal lifestyle and activities can also be provided.  

The Major Trauma Practitioners are happy to respond to any questions or queries after you have left the Major Trauma Centre and this can prove invaluable in patient recovery and support integration back into your own world!
