Medicine Rounds

Medicines are routinely given out 4 times a day, unless otherwise directed by your medical team.  Nurses wear red tabards and we would ask that they are not disturbed whilst in the process of administering medications.  If you require pain relief outside of the normal 'rounds', please tell a member of the nursing team, who will advise if it is prescribed.


Mobile Phones

Please be aware that mobile phones or handheld devices should not be used to take photographs without permission.  We ask you to have your mobile phone on silent or vibrate to minimise distruption to other patients.  Please be considerate when taking calls, keep them to a minimum and we ask that no calls are made in patient areas between the hours of 10pm - 8am.


Discharge from hospital

We aim to tell you in good time when you are expected to be discharged from hospital.  We request that you make your own arrangements, wherever possible, to be collected from hospital by 10:00am on the day of your discharge.  If you have any concerns regarding your discharge, or do not know the expected date of your discharge, please ask the nurse in charge of your care.

If appropriate, a specific information sheet will be provided to you before your discharge from hospital with any necessary information and support that may be required.
