Flowers and plants

Epworth Freemasons, 2 East (Oncology and Haematology​

  • We ask that no flowers be brought to patients on Ward 2 EastAlternative gifts such as balloons or cards are welcome​. 

  • Lilies are known to cause allergies and related symptoms in some people. In order to protect our patients, staff and visitors from this known allergen, Epworth does not allow lilies to be brought into any of our hospitals. 

We have encouraged patients to bring in artificial gifts which last much longer and are safe for all patients admitted into the rooms.
