Staying in hospital

We run services from two hospitals, make sure you know which hospital you are going to:

Being admitted to hospital

You will have received a letter telling you your admission date. Telephone the number to confirm your bed is available and you will be advised where to come. You may wish to bring a relative or friend to help you settle in. Sometimes the number of emergency admissions is higher than expected, in which case we may need to cancel an admission (you will be given a new date within 28 days).

If you wish to cancel or reschedule your inpatient procedure please contact the Admissions Team urgently on 01895 279301. Please have your Patient Number to hand.

Post is collected and delivered every weekday. Post for collection should be given to a member of the ward. Please make sure your relatives and friends know the name of the ward you are on, as this will enable your post to be delivered promptly.
