Ward 19 is a 28/30-bed ward caring for both male and female patients.
It is an acute general medical ward specialising in a vast array of medical conditions, along with frailty, wound care, diabetes, and end of life care.
The ward has two consultant orthopaedic-geriatricians and a diabetes consultant.
We believe in delivering high standards of care and encourage family members to engage in their relative’s hospital journey.
We encourage independence where possible and support the ‘End PJ Paralysis’ programme, by supporting patients to wear their own day clothes, if provided.
We have a senior team of Band 6’s who are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Alternatively Jane Hartland, the ward manager, or Elizabeth Winter, Matron, are also happy to liaise with you, by phone or email, if not available on the ward for a face-to-face meeting.
No longer known as SAU or EPAU.
Recent feedback from patients:
- Everybody on the team (day & night) provided first class care. They were considerate, generous and always willing to help.
- The care by all the nurses was amazing. The skills the nurses have makes the stay comfortable. They are friendly, caring and knowledgeable.
