Ward 37 Surgical

Welcome to Ward 37

Ward 37 is a 32 bedded General Surgery ward which also holds some Orthopaedic patients. We are a modern spacious ward, divided into 6 bays and 8 side rooms. All side rooms have en-suite facilities and bays have two bathrooms each. Male and female patients will be nursed in separate bays. Our nearest entrance is through the treatment centre. 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.

If you are admitted to one of our hospitals and would like some guidance about your stay, please visit our staying with us page.
