If I have to have an emergency operation, would I be able to stay at the specialist emergency care hospital for my recovery if this was nearer to my home?

Following your emergency care, our aim would be to get you back home as soon as possible. However, depending on your condition, the doctors and nurses looking after you may decide that you need ongoing hospital care. Where this ongoing care takes place will depend on your condition and the care services you need. For some patients, this will mean they are transferred to the district hospital site nearest to where they live.
