Interpretation and Translation Services
Interpretation services are available on request. Please ask the ward sister or enquire at the main reception.
Wheelchairs are available for use on the hospital site and are located just past main reception. You will need to put a pound coin in the slot to release the chair which will be returned to you when you put it back (rather like the supermarket trolley system). This ensures that chairs are always available for use by patients and not left around the hospital.
Vending machines: Hot and Cold Drinks
Vending machines offering hot and cold beverages as well as a selection of snacks and microwaveable meals are located in a number of areas throughout the hospital.
Mobile telephones are only permitted in the main corridors of the hospital, as the use of these may interfere with medical equipment. If mobile phones are brought into hospital, please ensure that they are switched OFF when entering a ward of clinical area.
A personal phone for each patient is included in the 'Patientline' entertainment system. Please ask the ward staff.
Public payphones are available for outgoing calls and these are located near the main reception. These telephones cannot receive incoming calls nor can they take phone cards. We do supply a limited number of public payphones to use from wheelchairs. Please ask the ward staff where the nearest one is situated.
There are toilets for visitors on the main corridor of each floor.
There is a post box in main reception where post is collected twice a day. The last post is 5.30pm. If you are unable to get to the post box please tell the ward staff who will be able to help.
