Healthcare providers looking to create the best possible experience for patients as they complete their hospital stay can look to Portakabin to deliver a bespoke Discharge Suite for their hospital site.


A Discharge Suite delivered to clinical standards can help patients feel safe during the transition from hospital to home and offers the patient more control over their own recovery. It can also help the hospital free up beds when they are needed most.

Providing the best chance to recover

Patients can move into a Discharge Suite on the day they leave hospital and can wait for medication to take away, transport and any other last minute arrangements which may be required before going home. Physiotherapy sessions and therapy treatments can also be arranged here in a safe and welcoming environment.

One step closer to home

Portakabin can deliver comfortable seating areas equipped with recliner chairs, café style eating areas, bed and ward space and kitchen and catering facilities.

Constructed to healthcare standards

Buildings delivered by Portakabin can be designed to meet the latest healthcare standards where required including: HBN, HTM, WHBN, SHPN and HAI-SCRIBE and we also work closely with the IPC (infection prevention and control) to ensure we meet all clinical needs.

LHC and NHS Shared Business Services framework approved

As a healthcare design specialist, Portakabin is part of frameworks including LHC and NHS Shared Business Services so when it comes to procuring your building you can rest assured that we will deliver as promised.

The Aylsham Suite is a fantastic addition for the Trust, which provides a comfortable and relaxing facility for patients as they prepare to return home after an inpatient stay in hospital. The co-located Medical Day Unit is also proving to be an invaluable facility for the Trust. It enables patients to have some elective procedures carried out as a same day procedure without the need to be admitted to an inpatient bed.
