Visiting times

Visiting times and guidelines for visitors 

All visitors to patient areas should report to the nurses’ station prior to entering the patient bed areas.  This is to enhance security in the wards and to improve communication with visitors.

For the benefit of nearby patients, visitors will be restricted to a maximum of three per patient.  Visitors should not visit for long periods – short visits are less tiring for patients.

Visiting times will be from 2:00pm to 4:00pm and 6:00pm to 8:00pm on all wards with the following exceptions:

The Maternity Unit visiting times are 9.00am – 1.00pm (partners and siblings only) 1.00pm – 3.00pm (quiet period – partners only) and 3.00pm – 8.00pm (partners, siblings of baby and other visitors).  Children, other than siblings, under the age of 14 are not permitted onto the Ward.

Amazon Ward operates an open visiting policy with no time restrictions.

The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) operates open visiting but recommends not visiting before 11:00am.
