New Visiting Times

Following feedback from patients, visitors and staff, we now plan to offer flexible visiting each day between 2pm to 8pm. For more information please see our leaflet

The new flexible times have been introduced across all wards however, some ward areas may need to put some restrictions in place to ensure that patient treatment is not compromised. Where this happens, staff will engage with families and visitors to explain. Please check with the ward before planning your visit.

  • Ward 4 (Surgical Receiving Unit) - Visiting Time is: 2pm - 4:30pm and 6pm - 8pm daily
