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.
