Minimal storage available on ward, pack for overnight – two day stay, partners can always bring in extra things for you! Marsh is a very busy ward with a very quick turnover and patient discharge may sometimes be delayed if there are women in labour.
There is a patient kitchen available with drinks available 24 hours and vending machines by the lifts on level 2. Patients may bring in their own food and take-aways if they wish.
