You will be asked which ethnic group you belong to. This information is collected to enable the Trust to ensure that the service provided meets the needs of our patients.
There are occasions when patients may be required to prove residency in the UK and entitlement to NHS treatment. Please help our staff if they require this information.
You and your family have the right to be treated fairly and be routinely involved in decisions about your treatment and care. You can expect to be treated with dignity and respect. You will not be discriminated against on any grounds including age, disability, gender, race, religion or belief or sexual orientation. You have a responsibility to treat other patients and our staff with dignity and respect.
Every patient has the right to receive high quality care that is safe, effective and respects their privacy and dignity. Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is committed to providing every patient with same sex accommodation. Sharing with members of the opposite sex will only happen by exception, based on clinical need (for example where patients need specialist equipment or care such as in our intensive care unit, coronary care unit or high dependency unit). If this is necessary we will make every effort to move you to a same sex area as soon as possible.
We understand that coming into hospital can mean you have a lot to organise, and that it can be a worrying time for you, your family and friends.
We have put together a Bedside Folder to give you some important information to help you, your family and other visitors. We hope it will answer many of the questions you may have, particularly if you are coming into hospital as an inpatient.
Copies of the Bedside Folder can be found at every bed in the Trust, but some of the information found in it will also be useful to patients, families and visitors before they come into hospital or visit a family member or friend.
