Ward C708

Ward 52

Ward C708 (was ward 52) is a fast paced 24 bedded cardiac surgery ward. The ward is divided into a combination of four four-bedded bays and eight Ward 52 sistersingle rooms. We might meet you the night before your heart surgery, and we will look after you during your recovery, following your short stay in the cardiac intensive care unit.

The ward is a made up of a varied mix of staff who are managed by the ward sister, Liz Leech. Liz is supported by her senior staff nurses: Louise Bailes, Katy Hartley and Hannah Moore. The team also includes trained nurses, assistant practitioners, nursing assistants, a housekeeper and a ward clerk. All of these team members help contribute to the care you receive, and are supported by staff who provide cleaning services and the all important meals.
