For patients

The first thing many people notice when they arrive at one of our hospitals is the relative calm of our reception areas. Neither of our hospitals has an A&E department and most of our patients arrive for a pre-booked appointment or admission.

Our highly trained staff will do everything they can to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible, and in addition to the expert clinical care you will experience, we will also do our best to provide a helpful environment.

"Staff cared for patients with compassion. Feedback from patients confirmed that staff treated them well and with kindness."
