Information for inpatients

We aim to make each person’s stay with us as comfortable as possible. If you have any questions or concerns during your stay or visit please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the ward team.

Drinks and biscuits are brought round morning and afternoon and hot drinks and snacks are provided in the evening, after supper.

Additional information

Patients who are rehabilitating will be encouraged to get dressed so we would advise you to bring clothes that can be put on easily, such as track-suit or jogging bottoms or skirts with elasticated waistbands.

Storage space for personal property is limited, so it is helpful if this is kept to a minimum. We are unable to wash patients clothing and will leave this for relatives to take home. Anything that is soiled will be clearly labelled.

We know that family and friends may want to bring in treats for patients. We do not have space to store patients’ own food in our refrigerator, so please speak to a member of staff before bringing items which need chilling.

Religious and spiritual needs

Please talk to the ward staff about any religious or spiritual requirements. You may also wish to inform your own religious or spiritual leader that you are coming into hospital.

A hospital chaplain attends every Tuesday morning and visits the inpatient wards, additionally to as required.
