Welcome to Caversham Ward.
Welcome to the Caversham Ward, a medical ward specialising in neurological rehabilitation and acute medicine.
The patients are cared for in single sex bays. Each single sex bay has a designated single sex toilet and washing facilities adjacent to the bay.
Please use handwash on entry and exit from the ward. There is an intercom to contact the nurse's station.
Ideally a maximum of two visitors per patient, but due to the nature of the ward and the length of stay, we can be flexible. There is also a day room where patients can take their visitors. Children are welcome.
