Ward 4 is signposted from the main and east entrance and is located on the first floor of the new phase at Hexham General Hospital.
The ward accommodates 30 patients and all rooms are single/en-suite.
Meals are served at approx:
Evening Meal 5pm-5.45pm
Meals are ordered twice daily on the Hospedia system. Those requiring assistance or who have special dietary needs will have their meals served on a red tray (this is to highlight issues to staff)
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.
