Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

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.

Older People’s Medicine

Last updated: 09 October 2019

G level map

We offer:

  • Older people’s medicine (single sex wards and mixed sex wards)
  • Rapid access clinic
  • Domiciliary visits
  • Outpatients clinics (e.g. falls clinic)

The focus of our Community Geriatric Service is to provide assistance with the management of the frail elderly in the community, avoid unnecessary admission to an acute hospital bed and promote independence and wellbeing in older people by a range of means. These services are for patients aged 65 years and over.

Opening hours

Our ward based teams operate 24/7 whilst our Community Geriatric Services provide a range of clinics Monday to Friday, 8:00am – 5:00pm.

Referral information

Patients are admitted via the Emergency Department to the Acute Medical Unit (AMU) and after assessment by a Geriatrician and Specialist Nurse will be moved to an acute ward if an in-patient stay is required.

Our community clinics are accessed via GP referral or Consultant referral.
