You should inform medical and nursing staff of any allergies you may have to antibiotics, medications or types of food as soon as possible, even before you are admitted to hospital.

If you have an allergy, we will give you coloured wrist and ankle bands to wear. We will also record alerts in your medical record.

What matters to you, matters to us. For more information about how we will work with you to keep you safe while you’re in hospital go to Your safety is our priority.
