Ward Layout

Medical Therapies Unit is a 6 trolley/chairs unit situated on the second floor in Zone B (B45) adjacent to the Cardiac Ward and CCU. It is open:

  • 07:00–20:00hrs (Monday to Friday)
  • 07:00–15:00hrs (Saturday and Sunday)

We are a Nurse led unit providing care for patients admitted for planned treatment and/or investigations from a wide range of medical specialities, thereby reducing the need for inpatient admission. These specialities include:

  • Cardiology
  • Gastroenterology
  • Neurology
  • Respiratory
  • Endocrinology

Our ward philosophy is to care for each of our patients as an individual, providing a supportive environment that promotes independence and dignity and the highest standards of clinical treatment.

Meals and Drinks

Due to the flexible nature of our role, food and drink are provided according to each individual patient requirements.

Personal Belongings

  • For Cardiology patients, we request that all of your medication from home are brought in, we keep these locked at your bedside
  • We suggest you do not bring valuables into hospital. A small amount of money may be useful if you want to buy newspapers
  • To minimize disturbance to fellow patients we ask that patients & visitors switch mobiles to silent mode (i.e. no ring tones)

This hospital cannot accept responsibility or any liability for cash, valuables or personal property brought into hospital unless these are handed to the ward for safe-keeping and an official receipt issued.
