Please ensure that your clothing is labelled: if it's not, we can arrange to do this for you. Unfortunately storage space is very limited, so you may need to arrange for someone to take home most of your clothes after you arrive.

Please do not bring large amounts of money or valuables. If you do have any with you please hand them to your named nurse. We cannot accept responsibility for the loss or damage of your personal property unless it has been handed over for safekeeping and you have obtained a receipt for it.
