Cirencester Hospital offers inpatient and outpatient services, a Minor Injuries Unit and x-ray and ultrasound services, occupational therapy and physiotherapy.

From Monday 4 July 2016, the hospital car park is using an automatic number plate recognition system. This is to help ensure that free car parking at the hospital is used by staff, patients, service users and hospital visitors.

Parking will remain free in Trust-operated areas, but anyone using a space will need to enter their registration on one of the tablets located in the hospital before they leave. Not doing so will result in a fine.

The ANPR system is being operated by a private company which will also manage any disputes. The Trust will not profit from the new system but retains final say in any disputes around on-site parking.

Meal times
The catering department provides choices for patients with specific dietary, religious and ethnic needs. If you have special dietary requirements please let the nursing staff know when you are admitted.

We have “protected” mealtimes, and operate a strictly no visiting policy during these times. However, if you would like to assist your family member or friend with eating, please discuss this with the nurse in charge.

Meal times are:
Breakfast 7.30am
Lunch 12.00pm
Supper 5.45pm

Drinks and biscuits are brought round morning and afternoon and hot drinks and snacks are provided in the evening, after supper.

Water is available at all times and will be brought to you.

Visiting times for Inpatients

Visiting times are:
11.30am to 8pm

If you need to visit at a different time, please speak to the ward manager prior to your visit and they will help make suitable arrangements.

Inpatients: additional information

Patients who are rehabilitating will be encouraged to get dressed so we would advise you to bring clothes that can be put on easily, such as track-suit or jogging bottoms or skirts with elasticated waistbands.

Storage space for personal property is limited, so it is helpful if this is kept to a minimum. We are unable to wash patients clothing and will leave this for relatives to take home. Anything that is soiled will be clearly labelled.

We know that family and friends may want to bring in treats for patients. We do not have space to store patients’ own food in our refrigerator, so please speak to a member of staff before bringing items which need chilling.

Religious and spiritual needs

Please talk to the ward staff about any religious or spiritual requirements.

You may also wish to inform your own religious or spiritual leader that you are coming into hospital.

Therapists at the Hospital

There are Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy teams based at the Hospital working with inpatients and outpatients.

Volunteers

League of Friends

Cirencester Hospital has an active League of Friends. For further information, please call the main switchboard on 0300 421 6200 and ask for the Matron's Office.
