Wards at Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital

Please note: The intensive therapy unit (ITU) has been temporarily relocated to the day surgery unit due to a water leak caused by heavy rainfall.

We now operate extended visiting hours on many of our wards but please be aware that you may be asked to leave during meal times, which are protected, or while essential care is being provided to the patient you are visiting.

For each ward there are two phone numbers- a geographical direct dial and a new 03 number. These 03 numbers will eventually replace the 01472 numbers
