The Admission Procedure

When you arrive, come to the main entrance in Grove End Road and notify the receptionist of your arrival.  A member of the Admissions Team will show you to your room where you will meet your nurse who will help you settle in. Once you are settled, essential medical information will be taken and you will be given the opportunity to discuss your procedure with a member of the medical team.  Any queries you may have regarding your treatment will then be answered.

Although your consultant is not in the Hospital day and night, we have a team of specialist registrars who remain in the Hospital 24 hours a day and are in close contact with your consultant at all times. During your stay, you may come into contact with a range of clinical specialists including radiographers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and cardiac technicians.  All staff are highly trained in their area of specialty ensuring the very best in service and care.  Any staff visiting your room will all have ID showing their name and their role within the Hospital.
