Post-operative convalescent care is offered for those who have had major surgery, who live alone and have no-one to look after them on discharge from hospital. It may also be available to those whose spouses and family work and are unable to take time off. It is provided by Burrswood in Groombridge, Kent, funded by St Luke’s for a maximum of five nights. Each case is considered individually. St Luke’s is not able to pay for transport to and from Burrswood. If further nights are recommended by the Burrswood specialist as being clinically necessary, St Luke’s will consider funding up to two more nights. If the patient wishes to extend their stay they may do so at their own cost.
