Overview: Saxmundham Ward is a Trauma and Orthopaedic Ward with 27 beds specialising in fractured hips in its Fragility Fracture Unit.
Visiting times: 11 am – 8 pm daily. Please speak with the nurse in charge if you need to visit outside the formal visiting hours. Lunch and dinner are protected mealtimes so please do not visit between 12.15 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.

Refreshments will be served during and in between meal times.
Anyone wishing to assist their family member with meals should discuss this with the nursing staff.
Additional information: The ward has on three occasions been associated with hospital awards for Team of the Year and in conjunction with consultants nominated for Consultant of the Year.

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 passes this information on to others who may be concerned.

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