Moving day

On moving day, Wednesday, 11 October at approximately 9am, staff will start to move patients from D3a/D3b to A3a. All patients should be moved by lunchtime.

If patients are being discharged before lunchtime on Wednesday, they won’t be moved to A3a. Staff should avoid the area in and around D3a/D3b and A3a during the peak moving time between 8am-1pm, if possible. This includes the corridors immediately around A3a.

Quotes from staff

During orientation, I noticed that it was really spacious and the environment that we are going to be working in will create a positive atmosphere. This is a great place to work alongside the team and my colleagues. For the patients it’s really clear where they move to, sit or receive treatment.Registered nurse Zealeasha Bali
It’s lovely and exciting to go to a new place. The new ward is more spacious for patients and for the staff to work in and to move around. We love it! We’re excited to come over and start here.Clinical nurse specialist Rocela Munoz
