Useful information

We encourage our patients to get dressed everyday as you would do at home. Well fitting, comfortable and supportive footwear is essential.

All toiletries are required.

Snacks and drinks can be brought in, please check with the nurse that what you bring is suitable and safe.

All inpatient wards at Hampshire Hospitals have adopted John’s Campaign, which allows the carers of patients with dementia to stay in hospital with their loved ones if they wish.
