Sidmouth Ward

Sidmouth Ward is an acute medical ward specialising in gastroenterology, and also patients undergoing medical investigations. 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.


You are welcome to visit at any time but if you intend to visit before 9am or after 9pm, please arrange this with the senior sister or nurse in charge. This helps to ensure that open visiting doesn’t interfere with nursing and clinical needs, and doesn’t adversely affect the quality of any patients' stay while in hospital.

A maximum of three visitors at any one time is allowed. For safety reasons, children should be kept under supervision.

How to get here
