Admission to the Hospital

Admission to the hospital is either pre-arranged or through our Emergency or Out-patient Departments. For pre-arranged admission, you will either be told by phone or in writing the date and time of your admission.

Arrival at the hospital

Go straight to the Admissions Office (unless otherwise informed) located in The Whitty Building, entrance via North Circular Road, where you will be registered. Admission registration staff will register your admission and help you complete relevant documentation. As we provide a 24 hour Accident and Emergency service, bed cancellations are sometimes unavoidable. If, for some reason, you cannot avail of the admission date offered to you please contact Admissions as soon as possible so that alternate arrangements can be made. It may be necessary for you to be transferred between wards during your hospital stay. This will occur in order to facilitate the quality of care given to you and other patients in the hospital.
