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. We aim to provide a clean and safe environment to maintain your privacy and dignity.

We hope you will not hesitate to ask for as much information and advice as you require about any aspect of your care here on London Irish Ward


Visiting times are 13:00 - 20:00 (protected mealtimes from 12:00-13:00).
