About the ward: 

We care for people with a wide variety of medical conditions who require admission to an acute hospital. The ward environment has been specially developed to cater better for people with delirium and dementia.

Our philosophy is to try and enable you to return to your usual place of residence as soon as it is safe to do so. The process of planning your discharge begins from the time of your admission to hospital, and your ‘predicted discharge date’ will be adjusted according to your progress whilst you are in hospital. When you are medically fit, we will look to discharge you to an appropriate place, usually your own home, but sometimes to a rehabilitation environment. We will always consult with you (the patient), and where appropriate your family or next of kin, when it seems necessary to consider starting or changing any social care or a discharge to a new environment, for example a care home.

Ward manager: Louise Hewson

 

Finding us: 

Ward G6 can be found on level 6 of the hospital.

From the main hospital entrance: Turn right when you come in the main entrance. Turn Left and go past the hairdressers to the lifts. Take the lift to level 6 and turn left. Follow the corridor and you will come to G6 on the right at the end.

Visitors of patients who are likely to be hospitalised for 2 weeks or more can get discounted parking tickets from the main reception. This allows exit from the car parks for 14 consecutive days from the day the ticket is validated.
