Shotley 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 passes this information on to others who may be concerned.

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