Malala Yousufzai was released from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, in Birmingham, on Thursday to continue her rehabilitation at her family's temporary home in the vicinity.
The 15-year-old, who was shot by the Taliban for campaigning for girls' education, is well enough to be treated by the hospital as an outpatient for the next few weeks, officials say.
She is still due to be re-admitted late this month or early next for reconstructive cranial surgery as part of her long-term recovery. In the meantime, she will visit the hospital regularly for appointments with physicians.
Dr Dave Rosser, Medical Director, 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.
"She will return to the hospital as an outpatient and our therapies team will continue to work with her at home to supervise her onward care."
Over the past couple of weeks, Malala has been leaving the hospital on a regular basis on 'home leave' to spend time with her family.Malala was admitted to the Birmingham hospital Oct. 15 after being flown from Pakistan, where she was wounded in a school bus shooting Oct. 9.
