Malala Yousufzai has been discharged from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) after being being admitted in October.
The 15-year-old was shot in the head by the Taliban for campaigning for girls' education.
Malala will now be cared for by her family in their temporary home in the West Midlands but she will continue to be treated in the hospital as an outpatient.
She will return to the hospital in late January or early February for cranial reconstructive surgery.

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.
The hospital said that Malala has been leaving the hospital on a regular basis on ‘home leave’ to spend time with her father Ziauddin, mother Toorpekai and younger brothers, Khushal and Atul over the last few weeks in preparation for being discharged.
- Malala Yousufzai's father Ziauddin and younger brothers, Khushal and Atul visited her while she was in hospital.
Malala was admitted to the QEHB on Monday 15th October after being flown from Pakistan where she was wounded in an attack on her school bus on 9th October.
