We welcome and encourage visitors and the involvement of carers. This page gives you general information about visiting our hospitals. You may also want to check our wards page which has more specific information about each ward's visiting hours and any restrictions that may apply.
Up to two visitors per patient are allowed at any one time. This is to make sure that our patients get the rest they need and other patients are not disturbed. However, if there is an infection on the ward, we may restrict this to one visitor per patient.
- General Visiting Hours: 2PM-8PM, every day. This may vary, so please check with the ward you are visiting.
- Postnatal Ward Visiting Hours: 3pm-7pm.
Why we have visiting hours?
Rest is important for recovery, so please respect these visiting hours. Please also show consideration towards other patients during your visit.
If your relative or friend has been admitted to hospital in an emergency today or is critically ill, or if you are unable to visit during these hours, we may be able to be more flexible. Please ask a nurse on the ward for more information.
Most wards also operate a protected mealtimes policy, where you will be asked to leave so that our patients can eat without interruption sometimes we need to shorten visiting times to protect the welfare and privacy of all our patients. If this is the case, we will give you more information.
