Patients and Visitors




Visiting Patients

Visitors are asked to assist us in protecting our patients from infections by:

  • Staying at home if you have a cold, infection or stomach upset and only visiting if you have had no symptoms for at least 48 hours or - if you feel your visit is essential - first ringing the ward for advice
  • Keeping children, especially babies, at home because they are vulnerable to germs and infections brought into hospital
  • Washing your hands before and after your ward visit, using soap and water or hospital hand gel dispensers on wards
  • Using the chairs at patients' bedsides to sit on, not their beds.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are visiting the hospital out of normal hours (10pm to 6am) please see this map of Exits/Entrances that are open overnight.
