Cardiothoracic Services (Heart and Lung)

Ward 30 Freeman Hospital

Ward 30 is an Adult Cardiothoracic Surgical Ward which specialises in providing care for patients before and after having:

  • cardiac surgery
  • thoracic surgery
  • heart, lung, and heart and lung transplant surgery

This ward is for adults who have had heart and chest surgery and need a high level of nursing and medical care.

Cardiac rehabilitation meetings with patients take place daily on a one-to-one basis, either on the day of discharge or the day before discharge. Relatives and carers are also invited to come along where appropriate.
