Additional Ward Notes

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

Visiting times can be negotiated with the Ward Manager / Nursing Sister if there are difficulties keeping to the stated hours or if the patient is poorly.
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.
