Who will look after you?


While you are with us, you will be under the care of a consultant and a team of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.

Every ward has an experienced sister or nurse in charge. Groups of wards are supervised by matrons. Please ask to see your sister, charge nurse or matron if you have any concerns.

All staff wear a badge that carries their name and their job.
