For Patients

The Unit was recognised and presented an award (March 2011) by the British Journal of Nursing for the delivery of extremely high standards during the administration of Intravenous Therapy.


The service continues to receive compliments and accolades from patients, relatives and healthcare professionals and continues to attract visits and clinical attachments from teams from the UK and abroad, including a dietician from Hong Kong who commenced a clinical attachment with us in July 2011.


This section provides information for patients and their relatives / carers.  For clinical information please see our Professions section or view our Further Information area for information which isn't contained here.


We hope that you will find the pages useful and helpful.
