How to get to the hospital

Staff you are likely to meet

The clinical team on Ward 5 is led by Sister Teasdale and includes surgeons, specialist nurses, ward nurses, and other support staff.

Things you need to know

  • We realise that family and friends are anxious to find out information about patients' progress.  However we would appreciate if you could nominate one person to ring the ward for information.
  • If your relative requires high dependency care following their operation, please collect property and valuables on the day of surgery from the ward as there is limited storage available.
  • Please do not bring fresh flowers onto the ward. This is to help with infection control.
