Visiting times

We operate open visiting across the Trust.

Meal times

  • Breakfast: 8.00am
  • Lunch: 12.00pm
  • Supper: 5.30pm

There is a choice of menu for every meal time.

Requests are made 24 hours in advance of the meal.

For your first 24 hours you will be asked what you would like to eat; after this time you will be able to order your meal from individual printed menu cards.

A hot drink is usually served at each mealtime, mid-morning, mid-afternoon and in the evening between 8.30am-9.00pm approximately.

Occasionally a hot drink round may have to be omitted due to circumstances beyond our control.

What to expect

We will involve you with an individualised plan of care, giving a comprehensive, honest and clear explanation prior to and throughout any procedures carried out during your stay.

You will have a named nurse responsible for planning your care.

Patients, families and their carers have access to a dedicated phone line on each ward for direct communication; the phone can be taken to the patient's bedside - please ask a member of staff for details.

We ask that one member of the family conveys information to other family members, to avoid several calls to the ward.
