Patient Handover

  • Patients in hospital receive care from nursing, medical and allied health staff. Staff involved in your care need up to date information about your condition and treatment.
  • Clinical Handover involves the sharing of information between staff involved in your care. You can expect that staff will update you and involve you in handover information on a regular basis so that you know what is going on and your needs are met.
