Post discharge support 

Vista’s care continues beyond our wards

Vista has various informative elements on its website, one to note is the blog. The blog brings informative information about a variety of subjects to the readers on a daily basis.  Visit

At Vista we also make sure you got home. We have a Post discharge call programme, where patients are called by one of our staff members. With this call patients are reminded to keep doctor’s appointment, to take medication and we show our care by checking on the patient’s wellbeing and progress. Our callers will also assist with any questions patients may have.

Vista continues to provide education for patients and the community at large. Vista offers Emotional intelligence groups on a monthly basis where topics such as Depression, How to deal with difficult people and many more are addressed. These groups are open to the whole community.  See our public group seminar program for more info:
