Ward 26 Urology and Vascular Surgery
Welcome to Ward 26
Ward 26 is a 36 bedded surgical ward, that mainly specialises in Urology and Vascular surgery. The ward is divided into 6 bays and 4 side rooms, one of which has en-suite facilities. Male and female patients will be nursed in separate bays and there are also separate, newly refurbished, washing and toilet facilities. We encourage patients to bring in their own clothes, nightclothes and washing kit. Please speak to a member of staff before bringing children on the ward.
When visiting us at the ward we politely ask;
- That you make sure mobile phones are on silent.
- You avoid bringing flowers onto the ward due to hygiene reasons.
- Visitors avoid sitting on patient beds.
- There are no more than two visitors at a bedside.
- Chairs are put away at the end of each visit.
- Hand rub that is located on the main ward door is used when entering and leaving the ward. This is an important infection control measure.
