PATIENTS REQUIRING ISOLATION
You may be required to be nursed with
isolation precautions. This may be
because of a known or newly acquired
specific type of infection, or because
of your own immune status. This will
involve staff and on occasions visitors
being required to take part in additional
precautions when entering your room.
Nursing staff will discuss this with you
and your visitors, and can answer any
questions you may have.
FIRE TESTS AND DRILLS

safety of our patients, visitors and staff very
seriously. Our staff take regular training,
we have the latest evacuation equipment,

frequent and regular external inspection.
Our alarms are tested every Tuesday,

you when a drill is taking place; you will
not be expected to participate.
If you have a comment, suggestion or
complaint about any aspect of our service,
please approach a member of staff in the
relevant department and they will attempt
to resolve things as quickly as possible.
You will be given a Patient Feedback
