Service Monitoring

To continuously improve out Standard of Nursing care, we monitor our service to patients on an ongoing basis. On discharge patients are asked to complete a questionaire regarding their stay at the hospital. Participation is voluntary, but this will assist the hospital management to address any problems and improve our service to you. We especially welcome any suggestions our patients may have.

If you have any suggestions for us, please send us an email.


On leaving, do not forget to collect your medication at your nearest pharmacy or Birchmed can arrange for Collection of medication at MediPark Pharmacy, also collect x-rays if applicable. Before leaving the unit ensure you sign the nursing documentation related to discharge.

We welcome all of our patient's visitors, as we know what a difference the support of close family and friends can make. We wish you a healthy recovery!
