Carers or relatives may escort patients to other parts of the hospital such as the restaurant, garden areas or the shop which sells newspapers, and other basic items. There is a specific telephone for patients which can be used up to 8.00pm for both outgoing and incoming calls. The number is 023 9252 4047.
