Your Inpatient Hospital Stay

If you’ve been referred to hospital for an operation or test and you need to stay overnight, it means you're being treated as an inpatient.

We sincerely hope that your stay with us will be as pleasant and as comfortable as possible. Our staff are more than happy to discuss any aspect of your care with you, whether it is about the admission process or your care once you leave hospital, so please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff about any worries or concerns you may have.

​​The Trust aims to provide the highest level of care possible to all our patients and to ensure your full satisfaction with every aspect of your care and treatment.

Wherever possible we would advise you to ask a relative or friend to accompany you when you come into hospital. Patients under the age of 16 should be always accompanied by a parent or guardian.

​When you arrive on your ward, you will be welcomed and shown to your bed if it is ready or asked to wait in the day room. A designated​ nurse will co-ordinate your nursing care throughout your stay. The nursing and medical staff will talk to you about your individual needs.
