We look forward to meeting you – and have pulled this information together to help you prepare for your stay.

Our hospitals are world-renowned – the top ranking teaching hospital trust in England. Our hospitals have helped shape modern medicine and this tradition of excellence continues today with a rating of ‘excellent’ for our quality of care from the independent health watchdog the Healthcare Commission.

Our dedicated professionals are passionate about caring for you. You’ll get the best care we can give. Our patient-centred approach means we’ll ask what you think, and give you all the information you need to help you play an active part in any decision making. And you’ll be treated in an environment where your comfort, privacy and dignity are respected.

Patients tell us that preparing for a stay in hospital can be daunting. So these web pages provide useful information, from what to pack, to how to get here, and what happens when you go back home.
