Overview: Bramford ward is a flexible 12-bedded ward which is sometimes used for Medical patients during busy periods and otherwise used for Elective surgical patients.
Visiting times: Visiting times are 11am – 8pm daily.

Please assist staff by only visiting at the above times, unless you have made other arrangements with the ward sister or charge nurse.

Lunch and dinner are protected mealtimes so please do not visit between 12 noon and 1pm or 5 and 6pm.
No of visitors per bed: We request that there are only two visitors at a time and children under 12 should not visit.
We ask that visitors are considerate to the needs of other patients on the ward. Visitors are asked to check with nursing staff before entering a patient's room.
Meal times: Breakfast     8 – 9 am
Lunch          12 – 1 pm
Dinner         5 – 6 pm

Drinks will be served during and in between meal times. Bramford Ward has implemented protected meal times therefore the ward is closed during these times. Anyone wishing to assist their family member with meals should discuss this with the nursing staff.
Additional information: Key contact: Good communication is very important to everyone: the patient, the family carer, relatives, friends and the nursing team. We would therefore be grateful if, with the permission of the patient, one person such as the family carer or a relative or friend becomes the 'key contact' to enquire about the patient's progress during their stay on the ward, and then pass this information on to others who may be concerned.

All other information can be found in the 'Staying as an Inpatient' booklet.
