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.

Patient Enquiry Form

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 are sorry but we do not accept referrals or treat insomnia.

We encourage our current patients to contact us either by

  • Telephone on 02392 286000. Ext 3448 for equipment/clinical enquiries

or

02392286665 for referral/appointment enquiries.

If no one answers, please leave a message and someone from the team will get back to you. We aim to answer the messages on daily basis. We endeavour to return the call within 24 hours.

You will need to complete the form by giving us your contact information and details of your enquiry.

The forms will be monitored daily (Monday-Friday), and we will do our best to fulfil your request in a timely manner.

If you are not known to the sleep team, you will require a referral before we can assist you.
