Elstead ward is a seventeen-bed short stay frailty unit recently opened in the Division of Access and Medicine, specialising in the care of the older frail person. It is a short stay, 72 hour assessment and admission unit. We take direct admissions from the Emergency Department, as well as transfers from the Emergency Assessment Unit (EAU). It is centralised around holistic patient care with a multidisciplinary approach.
Normal visiting times have changed due to Covid-19. You may arrange a visit by contacting the ward and booking an appointment. The ward will complete a risk assessment for each visitor.
Visiting times are 2pm-8pm, Monday-Sunday.
