You will be shown to your bed and given time to settle onto the ward.
Your family or carer may accompany you if you wish. Once you are settled you will be assessed by a doctor, advanced nurse practitioner or nurse. They will discuss with you your needs and concerns and answer any questions you may have.
You will meet members of the team and be given the opportunity to discuss the initial planning of your care with both medical and nursing staff. If you wish, your family may be present during this time, or if not, they may discuss any issue with staff later with your consent.
