Additional Ward Notes

 

There are numerous visitor parking spaces around the building and there is also access to some disabled parking bays.

Please speak to the ward directly if you have any queries regarding visiting.

We encourage the involvement of relatives and carers so please ask if you wish to be involved in aspects of care such as feeding.

During busy periods on the ward, such as early mornings, we encourage relatives/carers to keep telephone enquiries to a minimum. Therefore we ask that you nominate one person to contact the ward about the patient’s welfare, this person can then relay the information to other family members.
