Use of mobile phones is permitted in some areas of the hospital and on some wards. Please check to see if this sign is present before using your mobile phone. If in doubt, ask staff before switching it on. Mobile phones in hospitals can also disturb other patients, so on wards where they are permitted they should be set to 'silent' and they must be switched off if this is requested by staff. We request that patients do not use their mobile phones between the hours of 11:00pm and 7:00pm. This is so that all patients can get the rest they need.
There is a post box at the Main Entrance. If you are not able to get to the post box a member of staff will be happy to help. If anyone wants to send mail to you during your stay, it should be addressed to you by name and show the ward you are on. The address is:
Royal Stoke University Hospital
Stoke on Trent
