What to Expect

There are many staff of different professions on the ward, for instance physiotherapists, dieticians, x-ray radiographers, etc. On admission you will be allocated a 'named nurse' who will, with your agreement, plan your care over the next few days. He/she will answer any questions you may have and be your primary carer during your stay. On arrival, you will be shown the layout of the ward and where the toilets and bathroom are located.

You will meet many different staff while you are in hospital. All staff wear identity badges with their name and photograph.
