How to contact the Ward

You and your family will be informed of the best time to telephone for news.

Telephone numbers: - 0300 422 4011

Or Telephone Switchboard on 0300 422 2222 and ask for the Ward.

There are no bedside phones in CCU. However it is possible for immediate next of kin to phone the mobile number in order to speak to a relative. The number is: - 0300 422 2958.

Bedside phones are available within the main ward and a card may be purchased from the machine located outside the ward. Calls should be restricted between the hours of 8.00am - 8.00pm, and not at all during the hours 1pm - 3pm when patients are encouraged to rest.

Relatives are welcome to phone and speak to a nurse, but we encourage families to assign one family member to act as spokesperson in order to cut down on the amount of time a nurse spends dealing with phone calls.

 

Any questions?

Please feel free to ask your allocated nurse or the ward sister if you have any questions / problems during your stay. He / she can make arrangements for you to discuss your care with other members of staff, e.g. doctors, social workers, etc. should you wish.
