Going into and leaving hospital

NHS hospital services are run and managed by NHS trusts and if you are a resident in England, treatment at NHS hospitals is free. Apart from emergency care, hospital treatment is arranged through your GP, dentist and optician.

Hampshire, Portsmouth, Southampton and Frimley Park hospitals are governed by different NHS Trusts and it is their responsibility to ensure you have the right support to live a healthy life, and get the right treatment when and where you need it.
