On each ward there are experienced nurses who are responsible for the safe running of the ward you are staying on.

A team of trained nurses and healthcare support workers will also care for you during your hospital stay and one named nurse will be responsible for planning and co-ordinating your care.

She / he will hand over your care when off duty to another trained nurse. The Charge Nurses have overall responsibility for the wards or areas and welcome comments on the care you are receiving.

The nurses will be happy to deal with any concerns you may have.
