Discharge Food & Basics Parcel
No one knows how long they are likely to remain in hospital for after checking in to a local Accident & Emergency or call for an ambulance.
No one want to stay in hospital if given the choice but ill health is something we all dread, and try as much as possible to stay away from.
Leaving the hospital after 5 plus day of admission is enough to make us lose touch with our home. We go home to a fridge that’s got out of date food, milk, bread etc, and to a home with very little to eat from the pantry. Sometimes no toilet roll, toothbrush, toothpaste and misplaced flannel
This is why this parcel is so essential, it will be available to the patient as they leave the hospital ward so it will help provide few days of food and basic necessities.

My wish would be for you to have your parcel with you on the day you leave the hospital; this is why there may be variation to the content depending on when the referral is received.
