The new flexible times have been introduced across all wards however, some ward areas may need to put some restrictions in place to ensure that patient treatment is not compromised.

John’s Campaign

We recognise the key role that relatives and carers have in helping us to plan and deliver personcentred, safe and effective care.

We are committed to improving the care provided for patients with Dementia and
have signed up to “John’s campaign”.

Relatives and carers will be welcomed and encouraged to be involved at every
point of care in the patient’s journey, from outpatients, to the theatre entrance; at tea
time and overnight; during periods of planned or emergency care; every day, every time.

Please speak to the nurse in charge if the person you care for needs you and you are able and willing to stay with them.
