Patients, Visitors & The Public

Before you arrive

We want to make your stay with us as comfortable and pleasant as possible and prepare you for your visit to hospital. Although we have tried to include all essential information, this site may not cover everything you want to know so if there is anything that worries you, please ask your doctor, nurse or ward clerk.

Alternatively, you can contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) which can help when you need advice or have concerns. The PALS service can be contacted by phoning 01244 366066 (outside hospital) or freephone 0800 195 1241 option 2.

The following pages within this section of the website provide travel advice, car parking details, what to bring into hospital, as well as contacts in the hospital where you can obtain further information.

Before you view the rest of this site we would like to stress the importance of you contacting the hospital prior to your visit if you have any specific problems, needs or requests that you need to discuss. By contacting the hospital before you arrive it will give us the opportunity to make any special arrangements, if required.
