Going Home After Discharge

Your doctor will inform you when you are ready to be discharged. The check-out time from the ward is 11.00am, unless specified otherwise.  For your own safety, please arrange for a family member or friend to pick you up from the hospital. 

For faster discharge, choose to have your medications delivered on the same day to your home, without charge.  Alternatively, you can collect your discharge medications with medication counselling from Inpatient Discharge Pharmacy located on Level 1 (next to Mr Bean).

Medication Delivery Service for Patients Discharged from the Wards
  • Free for patients who can be discharged from the hospital before 12pm. 
  • Available only from Monday to Friday (excluding Public Holidays) between 2.30pm to 5.30pm.
  • Medications will be supplied in full based on doctor’s prescription.  Please inform our staff should you need to make any changes.
  • You will be contacted to confirm the time of the delivery. If the delivery is unsuccessful, the medications will be returned to SKH Inpatient Discharge Pharmacy for self-collection by patient/next-of-kin (NOK).
  • Medication counselling will be done over the telephone. Please ensure that you have provided the correct contact number.
  • No audio or video recording is allowed during medication counseling.
  • Once the medications have been delivered, no exchanges or refunds will be allowed.
  • Future request for medication top-up will incur delivery charges. 

You can also access your discharge documents on the Health Hub app without waiting for them to be printed. If you require follow up at our specialist clinics, your appointment date and time will be sent to you via SMS.
