For your privacy and dignity we offer same-sex ward accommodation. Patients who are admitted to our hospitals will only share the room where they sleep with members of the same sex, and same-sex toilets and bathrooms will be close to their bed area.  

You are welcome to bring in your own device to use the free Wi-Fi available across the hospital for all patients and visitors. We hope this will help deliver an even better experience during your time here.
