We don’t allow patients to use hot-water bottles and electric blankets because of the risk of scalding, rupture and electrical injury. Heat packs are not permitted because they pose a fire when heating in a microwave. If you require a heat pad please ask the nurse in your ward for a gel pack.
We recommend you do not bring large sums of money, valuables or jewellery into the hospital. We endeavour to guard against the loss of property, but the hospital cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to property kept in your room. Please ask your nurse or admission staff if you wish to use the hospital safe.
