Who will be caring for you

Nursing team

A team of nurses will be responsible for your care during your stay.

The senior sister/charge nurse co-ordinates the management of your care.

Matrons look after a number of wards and aim to ensure that the highest standards are maintained. They are also available to try to resolve any concerns you may have. If you wish to contact Matron, please speak to a member of staff.

Qualified nursing staff, together with assistant practitioners, healthcare assistants and student nurses will be allocated to care for you. This may include making arrangements for your continuing care following discharge home or to another setting.

A consultant will be responsible for your medical care while you are in hospital and will lead the team of doctors looking after you. The doctor(s) caring for you will see you regularly.

The consultant visits the ward at different times during the week and is kept informed of your progress through discussions with the medical staff and your nursing team.

The nursing staff are available for discussion and can offer advice regarding contacting your consultant.


Students receive valuable training at the Trust and may be involved in your treatment. If you would prefer students not to be present, please tell the staff - it will not be a problem and your treatment will not be affected.
