We provide more information about your stay in our welcome pack. This contains a welcome booklet, which explains what to expect during your stay and what will happen on the day you are ready to leave hospital.

It also includes things to help make your stay as comfortable as possible, such as ear plugs, an eye mask, hand wipes, toothpaste, a toothbrush and non-slip socks.

Ward rounds

Ward rounds generally start at 8am. The meeting your ward team page gives more information about the general ward routine.

Mealtimes

  • Breakfast - 7.30am
  • Lunch - 12 noon
  • Dinner - 6pm

We have a 'protected mealtime' policy between 12 noon-2pm so you can eat without being interrupted.

Hot drinks are always available from the tea trolley, in the corridor opposite the kitchen. This is free for patients, but we ask visitors to make a small donation. Our catering assistant will also do a tea round in the morning and in the afternoon.

There is a day room for you and your visitors to use. Please respect the area and keep it clean.

The Hospedia (formerly patientline) service by your bed offers a radio that you can use for free and a television, which you have to pay for. It also offers a telephone.
