Information on the right of people with dementia to be supported by their carers in hospital
Drug or alcohol problem?
If you drink excessively or use drugs, being in hospital can be difficult. These leaflets explain what support is available during your stay and after you go home.
What happens when you are referred by your GP to see a specialist?
This leaflet describes what you can expect to happen when your GP refers you to see a specialist or consultant, at a hospital or a community health centre. Published by NHS England.
This leaflet explains what you can do if you are being abused or if you are concerned that another adult is at risk of being abused, neglected or seriously harmed.
Surgical Assessment Unit at York Hospital
The Emergency Department (ED) and GPs refer patients to this unit to have an urgent specialist surgical opinion on their condition. The team at the unit can quickly assess and investigate their condition. A decision is then made on whether they need to be admitted to hospital or can safely be discharged home, perhaps with further follow-up.
