Visiting Hours

Friends and relatives are allowed to accompany patients into hospital as long as the patient has given permission.

If a patient needs someone to accompany them following their procedure to drive them home and stay with them, then you will be given this information prior to your admission so that you can make appropriate arrangements. For more information about leaving hospital click here.
