What to bring with you
We will send you a letter before your admission date explaining what you will need to do on the day you are booked to come into hospital.
You should bring:
Day clothes and shoes - this will help you recover faster
Toiletries (e.g. soap, flannel, brush, comb, tissues, toothpaste, toothbrush and cleansing wipes)
Any medicines, tablets or inhalers you normally use
Any glasses, dentures or hearing or walking aids you normally use
A small amount of change for newspapers, telephone calls, etc. (mobile phones cannot be used in many parts of the hospital as they can interfere with the efficient working of some medical equipment).
There will be a cabinet by your bed where you can keep these things. If you want to bring any valuables with you, your named nurse will arrange for their safekeeping elsewhere on the ward.
