Patient Affairs - Property

Patients are discouraged from bringing valuables/money into the hospital during their stay, although in some circumstances this is not always possible. Patient Affairs will retain valuable items safely provided they are handed into a member of the ward staff and a receipt is obtained.

We record lost items in a register when we are notified of the loss. We also retain valuables found for a limited period of time and endeavour to reunite them with the owner where possible.
