Making a Complaint to HDC

When you get home
We strongly advise you have a capable adult with you for the first 24 hours following discharge from hospital. It's important that you rest during this time so it's helpful to have additional support.

It's normal to feel some degree of pain or discomfort after an operation - your surgeon and nurses will explain what is to be expected based on your procedure.  Please also feel free to call us if you have any queries.
Please call your surgeon or doctor immediately if you experience
  • increased pain or excessive swelling around the wound
  • nausea or vomiting
  • chest pain or breathing trouble
  • fever or chills
In the event of an emergency call an ambulance (111).
