Coming to our hospitals
We have two hospitals – Guy's Hospital and St Thomas' Hospital:
Patient with friend/carer
If you are worried about coming to hospital, you can ask a friend or carer to come with you.
When you come to our hospitals, remember to bring with you:
Your appointment letter.
Any medicines you are taking.
Your hospital passport, if you have one.
A hospital passport is for patients with learning disabilities.
It helps the hospital staff care for you. It gives them information about your needs and how you like to be treated.
Patient arriving at reception
When you arrive at hospital, go to the main reception and show them your appointment letter.
They will tell you where to go.
Nurse in uniform
All staff wear badges with their name and photo on, so you know who they are.
If you get lost, ask a member of staff.
When you are at the hospital, make sure you wash your hands or use the hand gel. This helps stop germs from spreading.
There are shops and restaurants at our hospitals.
