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. 

Unless your call is urgent, please call after 10.30am, as this will allow the doctors to have updated the nursing staff on patients' progress.
