If you need to change your admission date, please contact us as soon as possible and we will try to arrange a date that is convenient for you. Your admission letter should give a contact for number for your enquiries. If you are still unsure which number to call, please call the switchboard on 01274 542200 and they will put you through to the correct ward.
Please make sure you read your admission letter carefully, and ensure you follow any instructions about eating or drinking on the day of your admission. Failure to do so may result in your treatment being delayed or postponed.
If you have a care worker, social worker or other professional who helps you at home, please talk to them and the team at the hospital before your admission. This will help us to ensure we get you home as soon as you are well enough to leave hospital.
If you have mobility, communication, hearing or visual impairment you may wish to tell us before your admission. If you have a learning disability, we may then ask you to complete an assessment form called ‘Closing the Gap’. Please let us know at pre-assessment or by contacting your consultant’s secretary whose details are on your admission letter.
