Staff you are likely to meet

Ward 10 is led by Sister Tipple and the clinical team includes ENT surgeons, nursing staff, audiologists (hearing specialists), speech and language therapists, and other support staff.

Things you need to know

  • Call at the Admissions Desk in the main entrance of the hospital with your admission letter.
  • Please bring all medicines and any inhalers you are taking with you.
  • If you are being admitted between 8.00am and 12 noon and you are having surgery the same day, please do not eat before coming into hospital. If your admission time is 2.00 pm then no fasting is necessary as surgery will be the following day. Please contact the ward to find out more about correct fasting times.
  • If you are undergoing a surgical procedure which only requires a short period of stay on the ward, you may be suitable for nurse-led discharge.
  • Nurse led discharge is carried out the morning after surgery at approximately 7.00am. Breakfast will be available in the day room before discharge. Please arrange your early transport home.
