Montecute ward

Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton

If you are undergoing colorectal or urological surgery, you may be admitted to Montacute ward.

We specialise in preparing for you for this kind of surgery and then looking after you following your operation. We have a multi-disciplinary team including therapists to help you safely move about as soon as possible after surgery. We also support patients with ‘enhanced recovery’, which is designed to help you recover quicker and be discharged home sooner.

All our patients have modern, individual rooms with plenty of natural light.

Visiting Times: Visitors are welcome between 10am to 9pm – seven days a week. If you have relatives who wish to visit or stay outside of normal visiting times please discuss this with the nursing team.

Number of visitors to a bed: For the safety and comfort of all our patients we restrict visitors to 2 at a time, but do ask the nursing team if more visitors need to come in.
