Urology wards


If you need to stay in hospital overnight for a urology procedure or treatment you will stay on Aston Key ward or Florence ward. Please note:

  1. Florence ward is for male patients only.
  2. Aston Key ward is split into half female/half male. If you are a female patient with a query about your admission, please call Aston key ward. Occasionally patients may be admitted to another ward, such as Esther ward.

You will be asked to come to a pre-assessment clinic beforehand, to make sure you are fit enough for surgery.
