Ward 89 Senior Sister Julie Hart 0113 206 8289/0113 206 8389


Senior Sister Julie Hart


On ward 89 our aim is to provide the highest quality care as we would to our own family members.  We pride ourselves in the care we provide to patients and families and would encourage you to let the nursing or medical staff know of any concerns you may have.  We would also welcome your feedback about what we do well and what we could do to improve.

The ward is based on level 3, Bexley Wing, St James’s University Hospital, Leeds.  Our contact number is 0113 206 9189 or 0113 206 9289 which is available 24 hours a day. If your relatives or friends wish to telephone the ward to enquire about your health we would prefer if one person could be nominated and pass information on to the others as this allows nursing staff more time to care for patients. Please also be aware that due to confidentiality issues we can only give limited information over the telephone.


The ward is a 20 bedded unit, all single rooms have en-suite facilities, the rooms are equipped with television, fridge, kettle and cd player for your use throughout your stay.  At present we don’t have internet access but we would encourage you to bring in your laptop and mobile internet access (dongle).

Visiting hours are 2pm to 8pm, 7 days per week.  Regrettably children under 11 are not allowed to visit the unit because of the risk of infection to patients, however if you are well enough to leave the ward and wish to see your children we are happy to facilitate this where possible.  We encourage patients to bring in photographs, set up email and social networking accounts prior to admission as these offer an excellent way to keep in contact with your friends and family during your stay. Some patients have setup their laptops with Skype and webcams prior to admission.  We are happy for patients to use mobile phones during their stay.

Prevention of infection is very important to us; we therefore will provide you with the relevant leaflets when you arrive on the ward. Hands may look clean but invisible germs are always present, some harmful, some not. Removal of germs is an important factor in preventing infection both at home and in hospital. These germs are often passed from one person to another by physical contact so it’s important that patients, visitors and staff attempt to reduce the risk of spreading infection by regularly washing and gelling their hands.

For anyone needing or wanting to stay overnight then Bexley wing has a hotel.  Rooms are usually available at a cost per night, please ask the ward for details. We also have access to complementary therapists who provide reiki, and the Macmillan Information, Care and Support centre has a team of volunteers who are available to provide hand and foot massages.  The Trust also has a Natural Healer who you can either visit on level one, Bexley Wing or we can arrange for her to visit the ward.  There is further information about the Information, Care and Support centre and the Natural Healer on this website.

In addition to the nursing and medical teams, you will come into contact with other health professionals during your stay. In order to provide multi-disciplinary care we work closely with dieticians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers and psychology teams. You will be seen by our resident dietician within the first week of your admission so she can work with you to ensure your nutritional needs are adequately monitored and catered for.

As a unit we are continuing to evolve and are always looking at new and innovative ways to improve your journey.
