Elizabeth Loury ward


Ward details

Elizabeth Loury is a 22 bed ward that specialises in oncology, haematology and palliative care. We are also the designated ward for in-patient chemotherapy treatment and work closely with the chemotherapy unit to deliver treatment in a safe and timely manner.

We work closely with all members of the multidisciplinary team including the ward physiotherapist, occupational therapist, discharge co-ordinator and social work department, all of whom can be available to discuss concerns regarding discharge issues.

Patient safety and dignity and respect are all essential to the care we look to give on a regular basis. We aim to maintain individual's independence as much as possible but will always assist patients when needed.
