Visiting times are set to ensure that routine ward activities are run efficiently. They also give patients privacy as well ensuring they get sufficient time for rest and recuperation after surgery. Visiting times vary from ward to ward across the Trust so it worth checking the visiting times that apply to the ward you are visiting. Please contact us if you have any questions about visiting times or the ward.
