What shall I bring to hospital?
Many people prefer to wear their own clothes during the assessment period as they feel more comfortable however you will need nightclothes and toiletries for your stay in hospital. Tracksuits and gym shoes are often useful especially if an exercise or walk test is indicated.
Although there are busy periods during the assessment period there are also quiet times. You may wish to use this time resting, although some people bring books, magazines, walkman, etc. Please bring with you a list of your current medications including tablets, syrups, creams, sprays etc.
It is advisable that a family member accompanies you during the assessment period.
