Welney Ward is a 15-bed physical health needs inpatient facility, providing rehabilitation to enable patients to return to their own homes. We also provide end-of-life care.

The facility is led by a ward manager, who is supported by ward sisters. The team also consists of staff nurses, health care assistants, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, activities co-ordinator, housekeepers and a ward clerk. At all times there is a registered nurse available to discuss any plans or concerns you may have.

The multi-disciplinary team undertakes a weekly ward round and have meetings to discuss individual patients, their progress and their health goals. Medical cover is provided by local GPs complimented by two consultant geriatricians. Referrals are accepted from acute Trusts/community directly to the ward.

On admission, the patient is assessed by the ward team, goals identified and an estimated discharge date of up to 19 days will be set. The goals are then reviewed daily by the team and progress discussed at the weekly multidisciplinary meeting.

Discharge planning starts on admission enabling hospital discharge to be executed in a safe and timely manner. Patients and their families are expected to take an active part in the patients journey whilst on Welney Ward to achieve the best outcome possible. If required, referrals are made to other professionals/agencies to help support and facilitate a safe discharge.
