Cardiac Unit

The Cardiac Ward is a 21 bedded ward divided into a 6-bedded monitored acute coronary care unit (CCU) and 15-bedded general cardiac/medical ward (comprising of 2 bays each with 6 beds, a single side room and a double side room).

The average stay in CCU is 2 days when you will then be moved to the main ward in either the red (female) or blue (male) bay. We endeavour to keep the bays single sex but on occasion it is unavoidable to have mixed-sex bays. Please ask your nurse for more information.

During each shift a nurse will be allocated to your care, please do not hesitate to ask him or her any questions you may have regarding your treatment. We do, however ask that where possible please do not disturb your nurse during a drug round.

The Cardiac ward is in St. Luke's Wing on the ground floor.
