Strike action will be taking place from 7am Saturday 24 February 2024 to Thursday 28 February 2024. Please continue to attend your appointments unless you are contacted and told otherwise.

The strike action may mean our A&E is a lot busier than usual, which means the waiting times will be longer. If you need help which is not life threatening, please use 111, Pharmacies, GPs or Urgent Treatment Centres. Thank you for your understanding during this period.

Liver Ward

Our ward specialises in hepatology and gastroenterology caring for patients with conditions such as liver disease, gastrointestinal bleeding, gastrointestinal cancers and inflammatory bowel disease.

Our patients are admitted from a variety of settings including: medical admissions units, critical care areas and outpatient clinics. We frequently take transfers from other hospitals for specialised procedures.

Our ward promotes Mealtimes Matters and encourages relatives that wish to visit during mealtimes to help if their relatives require assistance with meals.

 

Information for visitors

Important update: we have had to change our visiting arrangements in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. This national requirement aims to prevent the spread of infection and protect our patients, staff and visitors. We are doing everything possible to enable certain patient groups to have visitors.  For further information click here

Our ward is called F21 and is located on F Floor, West Block at the Queen's Medical Centre.

Visiting times are 10.00 to 20.30 every day. However, we are flexible for relatives to visit at other times with prior consent should these times be restrictive.

Daily ward rounds are from 08.00 with the ward consultant. If the patient consents, relatives can arrange to be present or arrange an appointment to discuss treatment plans by contacting the consultant’s secretary.

If you have any specific access requirements, queries or require support for your visit please contact our ward in advance.
