Information for Patients

Please bring in all your current medications in labelled boxes along with a supply of day and night wear including slippers and outside footwear. 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. Together with 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.

You will be issued with an admission pack when you arrive on the ward, this contains leaflets and information for patients and relatives.

Your Hospital Stay

If you are admitted to hospital as an inpatient – either for a planned procedure or in an unplanned or emergency situation – you may find this additional information about your hospital stay useful. Our staff are always happy to help, if you have any questions please ask.
