Bed being made on dementia ward

G7: Enhanced dementia care ward

Our enhanced dementia care ward, G7, looks after people with dementia or delirium (sudden confusion) who are medically unwell and need to be in hospital.

We offer a quieter environment, smaller ward and specialist care from a range of professionals. We're one of only a handful of specialist wards in the country that provides this type of care.

You can find us on G level, West Wing, in Southampton General Hospital.


Family and carers are very welcome. You can visit every day from 8am to 10pm. Please speak to the nurse in charge before bringing children or babies to visit.

Please do not visit if you have had diarrhoea or vomiting in the last 48 hours. You must be 48 hours clear of any symptoms before visiting.

Call the ward on 023 8120 8169.

Unless it's essential or an emergency, please call after 8am and before 10pm to avoid the phone waking our patients up.
