Your admission & stay

In most cases, your doctor will have explained what you’ll need to do to prepare for your procedure, and you also should have received a Pre-admission Booklet. Please read this carefully, as it contains everything you need to know about your stay, as well as information on our location, parking, public transport options and more. We have a variety of retail services on-site, including several places to eat, a pharmacy, gift shop, book shop, florist and hairdresser.

When your doctor decides you’re ready to return home, you will be officially discharged from San Heart and given a discharge summary (one will also be sent to your GP), any x-rays and any medications you may need. If someone is collecting you by car, we recommend they bring a cushion to tuck under your seatbelt for comfort – and if you have a long drive, please take a break every 1-2 hours to stretch your legs. In some cases, you’ll be referred on to our rehabilitation team who run programs to help you get back on your feet.
