You might well be given other information on your ward that’s more to do with your particular condition or treatment. If you have any other questions or need anything to make your stay more comfortable, please feel free to ask anyone, healthcare assistants, therapists, nurses or doctors.
The way you are looked after in hospital is our key priority. This is so important to us that we have a whole section dedicated to our promises and how you can expect to be treated.
We have a set of values that act as our guiding principles to make sure we deliver the best possible care for every single patient. We strive to deliver inclusive health services for all in a dignified and respectful way. We are also committed to providing every patient with same sex sleeping bays, bathrooms and toilet facilities.
These principles and policies put our patients at the heart of everything we do and help us provide you with high quality, safe and effective care and treatment.
The following sections detail what happens at every stage of your stay with us.
When you’re admitted, it’s a good idea to ask a friend or relative to take home anything you won’t need while you’re here, and, because wards can be very busy, do take special care of things like glasses, hearing aids and dentures.
You’ll also need to make your own arrangements for clothes and laundry, and bear in mind we can only be responsible for property which is handed in for safe keeping.
