Visiting hours and ward information

Visiting hours

Visiting hours in most wards are:

2pm - 5pm

6pm - 8pm

Some wards and specialist departments (e.g. children's and maternity wards) have their own times, so please check with the ward if you are planning a visit.

Visitors are limited to two per bed at any one time. If more people need to visit at one time please check with the nurse-in-charge. Children are welcome but they remain the responsibility of the adult visitor. It is suggested that visits, which include children, should be limited to a maximum of 30 minutes.

If you are visiting a ward please pay particular attention to any infection control instructions. Your best protection against any virus is thorough handwashing with soap and water.
