Visiting times

Keeping in touch with friends and family can help patients recover from illness and we welcome visitors to the hospital. Visitors are welcome to bring flowers, food and drinks for patients in our hospitals.  However you may wish to check with ward staff that the patient isn’t following a restricted diet due to their condition before you buy any food or drinks.
