Our Private Patient Facilities 

Our private patient facilities are located on the Maple Suite (previously known as Audrey Leigh) at LHCH. Our Ward Manager is Sandra Wilson. All our private rooms have en-suite facilities and are furnished to ensure your privacy and comfort with freeview TV, wi-fi internet access and a bedside telephone.

Our chef, in a dedicated kitchen within the Ward, prepares our patients’ meals and our team of hostesses provide room service throughout the day.
