Ward 36 is the Northern Oesophago–Gastric Unit and mainly provides care for people requiring treatment for a range of upper gastrointestinal (upper GI) disorders.
We have four special care beds based on the unit for patients who need specialist care.
I recently had emergency surgery for a strangulated hernia. The surgical team and all staff involved on Ward 36 were extremely caring kind professional and showed me dignity and respect. The hospital from what I saw was immaculate well lead and organised. I felt very safe and very well looked after. Thankyou all so much.
