London Irish Ward is a ward in the Stanmore Building made up of 16 single ensuite rooms and four bays, each with four beds and a bathroom/toilet. When recovering from surgery or having investigations performed, you will want care, rest and comfort. Whether you are here for a day or a number of weeks, we want you and your family to feel well informed and understand what is happening.
