The ward has a dedicated consultant-led team which provides care to our patients - predominantly over the age of 65.

We have a dedicated ortho-geriatric team of doctors who care for our older patients with orthopaedic conditions.

This team consists of an associate specialist in ortho-geriatric care and a ward-based doctor.

They work very closely with the nursing team, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and social workers in caring for patients with complex needs.

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.
