Bromyard community hospital
Visiting restrictions information
Patients who require a period of rehabilitation at a community hospital will need to have an assessment undertaken of the support they will need during their stay. This assessment will consider which facility in Herefordshire can best meet their needs.
Bromyard Community Hospital is a modern, well-equipped hospital, staffed by dedicated professionals who are committed to providing quality care for patients. As well as the qualified Nursing staff, there are teams of professional staff such as Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists, who will help you with your recovery.
While you are staying here your medical care will be provided by a combination of General Practitioners and Consultants, supported by highly trained staff. As soon as possible after you arrive a doctor from one of the local surgeries will visit to assess you. If you have been transferred from another hospital specific instructions about your care will have been sent with you and any medication your need and your medical records and x-rays will be available here.
There is one main ward at the hospital. The main ward is split into smaller rooms which have 1, 2 or 4 beds in each. All the rooms are single sex so you will not have to share a room with someone of the opposite sex.

A patient information booklet is available for you to read to help you prepare for your stay in hospital. This information will also be available for you at your bedside if you are staying overnight in one of our hospitals.
