Ward 1

Ward 1 (formerly S1) is a busy surgical ward with many specialties including gastrointestinal, urology, ear nose and throat, maxillofacial and ophthalmology.

We have a dedicated team of excellent surgeons and a friendly team of experienced nursing staff giving highly skilled nursing care.


We have 16 en suite bedrooms and two four-bed bays.

Each en suite room has a sofa bed and the bays have pull down beds so that a parent can stay overnight. Bedding and pillows are provided.


We want to make sure that patients are kept occupied and entertained and that their hospital stay is as pleasant as possible. Facilities on Ward 1 include:

  • a play room full of toys, books and games for younger children
  • a teen room – a parent-free zone for patients aged 11 and over that has video games, a large-screen TV and comfy chairs
  • a television by each bed that is free to use and has many Freeview channels and some Sky channels

All the wards have play specialists who organise activities to help patients have fun while they are here. They are also available to distract patients during procedures that take place on the wards like taking blood or fitting a cannula.

There is also a dedicated parents’ room with access to free cereals, drinking water and hot drinks. There is also a freezer with a selection of meals catering for a variety of dietary requirements available for all on a ‘pay what you can afford’ basis.
