Whether you're an emergency patient, visiting us for an appointment, staying overnight or longer, you will need to know what to expect, what to bring and where you can get further information.
Coming to hospital
When you're coming to hospital there are a few items you will need to bring.
When you come to hospital for a day visit, you are known as an outpatient.
If you are booked in for an operation, you may be asked to attend a pre-admission clinic one to two weeks prior to your operation.
When you stay at hospital overnight or if you are admitted for day surgery, you are known as an "inpatient".
We have two emergency departments that are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There is no need to call first, just arrive at the department at any time.
