Safety, security and personal property


We have a zero tolerance for abusive, threatening or violent behaviour towards everyone in our environment. Unacceptable behaviour will be addressed immediately and you may be asked to leave. The welfare of our patients, staff and visitors is our highest priority.

Security and personal belongings

Please be mindful of your valuables. We take no responsibility for any lost or damaged items belonging to patients, families or visitors.

Patient identification

When you’re admitted to hospital, a bracelet identification band will be placed on your wrist or ankle. You should:

  • Check that the band details are correct
  •  Wear  it at all times while you are in hospital.

Throughout your stay you will be asked many times about your identification details.

This is an important part of ensuring we are providing you with the correct medications and treatments.

Please feel free to remind staff to check your identification before you receive any medication or treatment.
