Each week the Citizen’s Advice Bureau and the Benefits Advice teams visit the ward to provide advice and guidance to our patients.
The ward has access to Wi-Fi. Laptops and mobiles are allowed (as long as users are respectful of other patients – it’s a good idea to bring headphones).
We have a number of side rooms that have their own TV and fridge/freezer. We also have a day room with a coffee machine and TV and a quiet room with a TV, X-box and PlayStation.
We are also able to have a relative or friend stay on the ward if patients are being nursed in a single room.
Visiting outside these times can be discussed with the nurse or midwife in charge. See our Visiting Policy.
Lowen Ward is located in the Link Corridor at Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro. If you enter from the Trelawny main entrance (near the café and WH Smith), take the lift or stairs to the ground floor below and continue past the Lloyds Pharmacy shop. The ward is located mid-way along the corridor on the right-hand side, opposite the Haematology Clinic.
