You’ll meet a lot of friendly people who’ll be here to take care of you during your hospital stay.

Once you’ve been admitted and brought up to our ward you’ll first meet some of our nurses. They might be staff nurses or you might meet one of our clinical nurse managers.

After the nurses have chatted to you and helped to settle you in you’ll then meet your doctor. Your doctor will be in charge of your care while you’re staying with us. He or she will have a whole team of other medical and health professionals to help with your care and to make sure that you are ok.
