What to bring

On admission, you need to bring:

  • any medications you’re currently taking
  • loose casual clothes and night wear (end PJ Paralysis)  
  • comfortable walking shoes
  • necessary toiletries 

As part of your care assessment, we encourage you to wash and dress as independently as possible.


We recommend you leave all your valuables at home as we don't accept any responsibility for their loss or damage.   

What to expect   

Continuing care / discharge  

Following your assessment a decision will be made to either:

  • discharge you home 
  • continue observations and ongoing care for up to 48 hours
  • transfer you to another ward


Due to allergies, infection control issues and space, we ask that flowers are not brought on to the ward.   

Meal times

Having a healthy balanced diet and good fluid intake is vital to your recovery from illness.

Our mealtimes are:

  • breakfast at 7.30am  
  • hot cooked lunch at 12.00pm  
  • dinner at 5.30pm   

Let us know if you would like us, a relative or carer to assist you at mealtimes. We cater for special dietary requirements.   

Mobile phones and wifi

You can use mobile phones and other electronic equipment on the ward, as long as they are used respectfully.

Wifi is available so ask us for details. 

Ward rounds

Multi disciplinary ward rounds are undertaken daily. Your nurse lets you know when your doctor is likely to see you.   We can arrange for a nurse or doctor family member to speak to a family member by prior arrangement.  Your discharge plan is discussed with you at ward rounds. 

When we discharge you 

It’s important that you arrange to be collected when you’re discharged. Let us know if you need a medical certificate.

Any outpatient appointment follow ups you need, will be sent to you in the post. Any medication you require will be delivered to the ward and explained to you before discharge.

You may be referred to the Rapid Response Reablement Team or other services if required. 

Contact us

You can contact us from Monday to Sunday. If we’re with patients, we cannot always answer the phone straight away, so try again later. Suggested telephone times for routine calls are after 10:30am daily.  One person, nominated by the patient, should make enquiries to the ward.

Patient confidentiality is essential. There are occasions when we're unable to share information. Information will not be disclosed over the phone.
