Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

We recognise the impact that a long stay in hospital can have on families and the importance of maintaining strong communication.  Our ward staff are keeping in touch with patients’ next of kin directly and our Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) can help pass on personal messages from family and friends.

During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

Sleep Medicine

C level map

We are predominantly a service to diagnose and treat patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.

We will occasionally diagnose other sleep disorders but don’t accept referrals directly for other disorders.

We do not accept referrals or treat insomnia.

 

We encourage our patients to contact us on our telephone number, however it will usually go to an answer phone. Please leave a message and someone from the team picks up the messages three times a day. We endeavor to return the call on the same day.

We do have troubleshoot/drop in clinics twice a week for our current patients to attend if they are having any problems. No appointment is necessary it is on a first come/first seen basis.

These are on:

  • Tuesday evening between 5:30pm and 7:00pm in the Respiratory Centre on C Level
  • Friday afternoon between 1:30pm and 3:30pm in the Sleep Annexe on E level between wards E7 and E8.

 

Opening hours

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 8:00am – 5:00pm, Tuesday 8:00am – 7:00pm, Friday 8:00am – 4:30pm.

Referral information

There is a referral form that GPs need to complete – this includes a questionnaire for the patient to complete. We will return referrals not made in this way.
