Malala Yousafzai discharged from Queen Elizabeth Hospital
Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban, has been discharged from Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham as an inpatient.
Malala Yousafzai, 15, was being treated at Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEHB) after being transferred following the attack in October.
She will continue her rehabilitation at her family’s temporary home in the West Midlands.
Malala Yousafzai will have cranial reconstruction surgery in late January or early February, the hospital’s trust said.
The Taliban said it shot Malala Yousafzai, a campaigner for girls’ education, for “promoting secularism”.
Doctors said the bullet grazed the teenager’s brain when it struck her just above her left eye in the incident in the Swat Valley in north-west Pakistan.
Over the past few weeks, Malala Yousafzai has been leaving the hospital on home visits to spend time with her father Ziauddin, mother Toorpekai and younger brothers, Khushal and Atul.
Dr. Dave Rosser, the medical director of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Malala is a strong young woman and has worked hard with the people caring for her to make excellent progress in her recovery.
“Following discussions with Malala and her medical team, we decided that she would benefit from being at home with her parents and two brothers.”
