Committed to delivering same-sex accommodation: our hospitals

Every patient has the right to receive high quality healthcare that is safe, effective and respects his or her privacy and dignity. Our commitment to this is reflected in our vision: world-class expertise, local care. 

We are compliant with the government’s requirement to eliminate mixed-sex hospital wards and rooms, except when it is in patients' overall best interests, or reflects their personal choice.
