Your visit

Who's who on the wards

You will meet many different staff while you are in hospital such as doctors, nurses, ward clerks, porters and healthcare assistants, for example.  So you can be sure of who they are, all our staff wear identity badges with their name on.  If you are not sure of the name of the person you need to speak to, please ask.

Staff have different uniforms, so patients and visitors can tell who’s who. The image below can help you identify some of the most common uniforms you will see during your stay.
