While you are in the hospital, your visitors are welcome.
Visiting times are 2pm - 4pm and 6pm - 8pm.
If your visitors are unable to visit during the above hours, please speak to the ward staff to dicuss whether other visiting arrangements can be made.
Please note: Patients have a protected mealtime from 12noon until 1pm. During this time your visitors are only allowed into the ward if they are helping you with your meal.
We ask you to keep the number of visitors to a maximum of four at any one time, as a large number may disturb other patients. Children are welcome on the wards, however, we ask for the number to be restricted to two. They must be supervised at all times.
If someone have a cold, cough, stomach upset or any infection, please ask them not to visit so germs are not spread to you or other patients on the ward.
