Frimley Park helplines have been set up within Surgery, Orthopaedics & Medicine with the aim of preventing readmissions back into hospital.
Every patient that is discharged from an inpatient stay receives a discharge envelope with the appropriate helpline number.
The discharging nurse explains they are to call the number and speak to a senior nurse who will be able to give them advice regarding whether they need to come back into hospital or if they could be treated as an outpatient.
