Visiting information

We very much recognise that visiting someone in hospital plays a vital part in helping their recovery and so encourage you to visit your family and friends.

Visiting times are generally between 2 and 4 pm and then 6 and 8pm but do check with the Nurse in Charge of the ward as some areas such as critical care, children’s wards and the Maternity Unit have their own visiting rules.

Please see our Visiting Arrangements webpages for more information on how you can help us minimize the spread of infection.
