When you are Admitted to 6a

What to Expect When You are Admitted to Our Ward

You may be admitted from a waiting list and these routine admissions are as follows:-

  • Thursday 9:30am Neurology

Whilst we can pre book you a date for admission we cannot always guarantee a time to show you to your bed space, although we will endeavour to do this as soon as possible.

One of the nurse will then come and ask you some questions and complete any necessary paperwork. You will then be seen by the doctor for your specilaity who will examine you and ask some more questions and explain your plan of care.

Although you will be admitted to a mixed sexed ward, the ward itself is divided so either sex have their own toilet, bathing and sleeping areas.

Please be aware that the Trust is now a smoke free NHS. Smoking is not permitted in any building or within the grounds of any of our sites. Information and support is available to any patients who wish to stop smoking. Nicotine Replacement Therapy is available to help reduce your cravings during your stay.


Going Home

You will normally be advised of your impending discharge a few days prior to the actual day. Any follow up appointments are normally forwarded by post. On the day of discharge you will be asked to wait for your transport in the Discharge Lounge which is situated in the main entrance of the Tower Block.
