Visiting hours are between 11.00 am and 8.00 pm daily in most wards, with a designated patient rest period between 1.00 pm and 3.00 pm.
To comply with COVID-19 restrictions, including density requirements, visitors are restricted to one adult visitor per day, with exception of those who are palliated; in this instance two visitors are able to visit per day if the individuals are from the same household.
- Visiting is at the discretion of nursing and midwifery staff, from whom permission should first be obtained. If visiting hours are unsuitable, please discuss this with nursing and midwifery staff, as we may be able to make special arrangements.
- Food, sweets and drinks for patients must be checked with the nursing staff, as many patients are on special diets.
- Visitors are requested to show consideration for the patients they are visiting and for other patients in the hospital, by behaving in a quiet manner, and by observing any restrictions on visitation made for their benefit.
- Visiting children are the responsibility of their parent or adult carer and must be supervised at all times while in the hospital, and noise kept to a minimum.
- Furniture is placed to ensure rapid access to rooms in emergencies. This also means that seating for visitors is restricted.
