Being Informed Matters

We believe you have a right to be well informed about your care and that your health benefits. Knowledge takes away stressful concerns, to speed up recovery.

  • A consistent focus

    Good communication should start on your first contact with our hospital and continue throughout. During consultation, diagnosis, treatment and any aftercare you require.

  • From everyone you meet

    You might expect helpful conversations with your consultant, although others also contribute. All our staff are encouraged to communicate with and support patients..

  • Offering clarity

    Medical jargon, or vague statements may not be useful. Clear information which you can understand is of more value and the best way to share with you.
