Visiting times on the ward are:
For more information on visiting please visit the visitors page. Visiting outside of the main visiting times must be agreed with the nurse in charge.
Please note that only two visitors are allowed per bed. However, there may be occasions when this is restricted to one visitor to bed to help prevent the spread of infection.
We also ask visitors to respect that our patients’ mealtimes are protected so that we can help ensure they receive optimum nutritional intake. We therefore ask that visitors do not attend during meal times at 1200 or 1700, so that our nursing staff can ensure the ward environment is conducive to eating and all staff are available to assist those patients who require help to eat their meals.
Willow ward contains 28 beds with six level 1 beds for those surgical patients needing a higher level of nursing care. The ward specialises in caring for patients who have had vascular surgery.
You should bring toiletries, nightwear, well-fitting slippers and comfortable daywear. You should also bring your medications with you.
Flowers are not allowed on the ward.
Ward staff are not responsible for the safekeeping of money and valuables, so please do not bring valuables or large amounts of money into hospital with you.
