In this section we provide a range of information that will help tell you what to expect when you come to hospital.
This includes coming for for an appointment (known as an outpatient), to stay overnight (inpatient) or for surgery (sometimes known as elective care) at our hospitals. We have also provided information for people visiting friends and relatives.
The guides help explain what it would be useful for you to bring with you, the staff who might be treating you and what will happen during your stay. Each patient and individual case is different but we aim to make your stay as comfortable and easy for you as possible. It is important to be prepared as possible for your hospital stay and we hope you find the information in these guides useful.
