Daphne Ward is a gynaecology ward that has 19 beds, five of which are used for women who are in and out of hospital on the same day as their procedure/surgery.
We are providing varied Gynaecology/Oncology and Reproductive Surgery including Emergency Gynaecology cases on daily basis.
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.
We run out of hour’s emergency gynaecology service for all patients that need a gynaecology review and treatment. We also take women who are experiencing pain and bleeding in early pregnancy and women suffering with severe sickness in pregnancy (Hyperemesis Gravidarum).
We have 4 bed spaces in a bay and 1 side room that are used Monday to Friday for ladies who require a medical termination of pregnancy or management of miscarriage.
These services are offered on separate days.
If you have left the hospital with a catheter, you may need to return to us for a trial without catheter (TWOC).
We also see women after surgery that need specific types of dressing or wound reviews done by the nursing team.
