Hospital Facilities And Shops At St. Mary's London
There are a variety and shops and services on site at the hospital for both inpatients and visitors alike. Restaurants and cafes that don't serve hospital food by the way, are in the form of the Union House and Café Qualita. You can also find two pharmacies on the premises. One of which is located on the ground floor of the outpatients building and the other is in the basement of the Clarence Wing. Which are open during normal office hours.
For those staying longer term or a few days, a library trolley will visit if you don't quite enjoy the pay per view television sets on offer. If you're lucky you'll catch the activities trolley also which comes around once a week.
If you're stuck without internet access, there's an internet cafe in the QEQM building. If you fancy a snack in the middle of the night and you're not nil by mouth then venture over to the Feast Vending Point. Probably not the best name for an eatery in a place of health, but it is open 24 hours a day and accepts cash or card.
If you wish to be close to your loved ones while they're admitted there may be accommodation available at Hammersmith Hospital. Simply ask the hospital reception for more details on the visitors accommodation. Not all hospital stays, fortunately, will require a religious service or the need to have guidance on hand. However should the need arise, in place at St. Mary's hospital are several places of worship.
You may not be spiritual but it's uncanny the how we pray for loved ones even when non believers. In this instance there are the following:
A Christian Chapel which is available to all faiths and those which have none also. It is situated on the first floor of the Mary Stanford wing. As far as religious services and ceremonies go, there is an Anglican Eucharist on site every Tuesday at 12.30 and a Catholic Mass on Sundays at 11.00. There are also two Prayer rooms located on the ground floor of the Clarence wing. One such Prayer Room is for all faiths and those without and another Prayer room serves Muslims and also caters for ablution facilities.
St. Mary's hospital London is also proud of the help and support it can provide to the public. they offer this though the patient advice and liaison service (PALS) which can offer help, support, information and advice to patients and their relatives, friends and carers.
