Visiting a Patient

Visiting Hours

We are visitor friendly, and do not have designated visiting hours across many of our wards.

It is our belief that family and friends are important to patient recovery. If you would like a family member to stay with you overnight please discuss this with your nursing team.

Please note: The hospital buildings are locked after 10pm. If you need to access the hospital after this time, please use the intercom facilities located at the Level 2 and Level 4 entry doors from the P1 multi deck car park.


Your partner is able to visit at anytime, however to ensure you receive adequate rest during your stay we do have visiting hours for other family and friends. as well as a designated rest period / quiet time on the ward. These are:

  • Partner & other children : 8am - 1pm
  • Rest / quiet time : 1pm - 3pm
  • General visiting : 3pm - 8pm

Coronary Care Unit (CCU) & Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

Because of the special treatment needs of patients in Intensive Care and Coronary Care, we ask that immediate family only visit with a limit of 2 visitors at a time.

Infection Prevention & Control

Hand hygiene is the single most important thing you can do to help prevent the spread of infection. Hand hygiene is a general term referring to the use of soap and water or alcohol hand gel to cleanse your hands.  See our Hand Hygiene for Patients & Visitors flyer for more information.

Visitors are requested to wash their hands:

  • On entering the ward before visiting a friend or relative
  • Before helping a patient with their meal
  • After using the bathroom/toilet
  • After helping patients use the toilet/bathroom or commode
  • On leaving the ward after visiting a friend or relative

Thank you

Practicing good hand hygiene both in hospital and other healthcare facilities can protect patients, relatives and staff from infection.
