Visiting Hours

We welcome visitors to patients but have set visiting times in place to ensure patients get adequate rest.


Visiting hours

Visiting hours are from 2pm until 8pm however visits may be restricted in the patient’s interest following their procedure at the discretion of nursing staff.  Visitors are requested to sign in at the Reception desk upon arrival.

We would advise patients under going daycase surgery to have a friend or relative bring you into hospital and take you home. You will be advised prior to admission if somebody will need to stay with you after discharge.
