I’ve been a patient myself so I want to make sure they’re getting the best care in this department.

About the ward: 

Daphne ward has 19 beds, five of which are used for women who are in and out of hospital on the same day as their surgery. 

You may be admitted to Daphne ward for a longer period if you have had surgery relating to any gynaecology specialty and need to stay in hospital overnight or longer.

If you have left hospital with a catheter, you may need to return to us for a trial without catheter (TWOC). We also see women after surgery who need specific types of dressing.

Some women who are experiencing pain and bleeding early in pregnancy are admitted to Daphne ward as emergencies.

Clinic 25

Clinic 25 is situated within Daphne Ward and provides ambulatory care including cystoscopies and manual vacuum aspiration for pregnancy associated conditions. 

Finding us: 

From the Rosie main entrance, head through the Rosie reception area. Take the stairs or lift B to level 2 and follow the signs to Daphne ward.

The door to the ward is secured for the safety of our patients. When you arrive, please buzz the intercom and the staff will let you onto the ward. 

Car park 2 is the designated car park for the Rosie Hospital sited within a couple of minutes walk to the Rosie main entrance.
