Guide dogs

Registered Guide Dogs for the Blind are allowed on-site (please report to each ward/department reception upon arrival).

Sight Helpdesk

This supports patients coping with sight loss.

It's run by volunteers with personal experience of sight loss who can provide on-the-spot help and advice.

Guidance is available on a wide range of topics, such as benefits, special equipment (watches, clocks, radios, sunshades, etc) and information about other organisations that can help.
