While you are on the ward a full assessment of your needs will be completed by the multi-disciplinary team.
Your allocated named nurse or associate nurse and the therapy staff will develop a personalised plan of care with you. This will be followed by all members of staff on the ward to ensure your needs are met.
When you are admitted to Hawthorn Ward, the professional who referred you to the service is required to make sure that you have a week’s supply of all the medication you are taking at the time. On Hazel Ward, you will require a four week supply of medication from the professional who has referred you. If you are prescribed anything different while you are on the ward your GP will be informed so this can be added to your repeat prescription for the next time you order your tablets when you are at home.
