    Patient Rooms

    At Wakefield we endeavour to give our patients a choice of room to suit their needs. Irrespective of your choice, you will receive the same high standard of nursing care. Overnight patients have a choice (subject to availability and appropriate to your operation) of a private room with ensuite bathroom, or a studio room with shared bathroom.

    If you are a day patient, you will be cared for in a studio room unless you have requested a private room (subject to availability on the day). Our fees vary accordingly and will be confirmed when we talk with you prior to your admission.

    There are 48 private rooms with ensuite, 5 ICU/HDU beds, 3 endoscopy beds, 15 studio beds with shared facilities and 5 La-Z-Boy chairs for short-stay and pre-admission patients.

    All patients’ rooms have private TV (Sky), radio and telephone, and a complimentary copy of the daily newspaper is provided. For those patients who wish to remain connected during their stay, free WiFi Internet connectivity is available for use with your laptop, tablet or smartphone.
