Suspicious packages

It is very important that you and your visitors feel safe and secure. There are a range of measures to ensure this including CCTV cameras, access control on some doors and our security staff.

All staff must display a personal identity badge with their photograph, name and job title. Please report any suspicious acts.

ASmoking is only permitted in three designated smoking shelters outside of the hospital building. Smoking (including the use of e-cigarettes) is not permitted anywhere else on site. The use of e-cigarette charging equipment is prohibited across the site.

The policy applies to all staff, contractors, visitors and people in our care.
