What to bring with you
Please bring in all your current medications in labelled boxes.
If you are attending for a planned procedure please bring with you a supply of day and night wear including slippers. We try to encourage our patients to spend time out of bed during the day; wearing day clothes where possible and safe to do so.
Please also bring a supply of toiletries – although a limited supply is available from the hospital shop.
Please do not bring valuables or large amounts of money into hospital with you as the Trust cannot accept responsibility if these personal items get lost or damaged.
