All patient condition checks must be made via the Communications Department. Please do not contact the wards direct. We respect patient confidentiality at all times. Patients details will only be released if you have the correct spelling of the full name and only if the patient or next of kin gives consent to information being released. Only a brief description of the progress of the patient will be given, such as the patient is stable, comfortable or critically ill.
Please note that anyone who is found to be interviewing, filming or photographing at the hospital without the permission of the communications team will be asked to leave immediately, and footage and photographs may be confiscated.
Photography and filming is not allowed in some areas of the hospitals, as patient care is always a priority and we have a duty to protect the confidentiality of our patients.
