Visiting times

Visiting times

We have set ward visiting times. This allows for doctors’ ward rounds, nurses to provide care and patients to rest. Our visiting times are 2-8pm.

If you cannot visit at these times please speak to the nurse in charge and we will try to accommodate your needs. We ask that there are only two visitors at a time and that they do not sit on the beds. Thank you for your support.

Meal times

Ward 26 operates a protected meal time system. This means that visiting is not allowed during this time. Food nutrition is an important part of a patient’s recovery. If you wish to have family support at meal times, please discuss with the nurse in charge.

Our meal times are 5.30-6.30pm.
