Adult surgical unit (Cedar and Maple wards)

What we do

We care for patients requiring surgery for heart and lung conditions.

The adult surgical unit (ASU) has 40 beds and is divided into two wards - Cedar and Maple. Cedar Ward, on the second floor, has 25 beds, and Maple Ward, on the ground floor, as 15 beds.  

Life on the ward

All patient areas are located in the main hospital buildings and are easily accessible from the main reception and a lift is available if needed.

Wards offer separate male and female accommodation and bathing areas are segregated. A few single rooms are available and are allocated on clinical need.

Visiting times

Following a period of visiting restrictions at our hospitals, we are now carefully welcoming back visitors. See our visiting guidance in full here

Visiting times at Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals operate seven days a week. Please check with the ward prior to your visit, as visiting times vary between wards.

Please note that visiting guidance for some wards in our hospitals may vary, so please check with the nursing team on the ward before visiting. 

Who you will meet on the ward

You will meet a wide range of multidisciplinary team members on Cedar and Maple wards, who each have expertise and specialist skills in their field. 

We also have an outreach critical care team, who will provide you with extra care if you have complex problems.
