Visiting a Patient

We know that sometimes visitors are apprehensive when they come to see a loved one in our care. Here are some useful bits of information before you visit. When you arrive in the Inpatient Unit we encourage you to look at the Visitor Information Board for more details.

Visiting Times

Our current visiting times are 9am to 7pm. However, these can be extended at the discretion of the Nurse in Charge.

We are family friendly

There are no age restrictions for children visiting. We have the Smile Room with toys and games, as well as a children's treat box on the Inpatient Unit.

You can bring flowers

You can bring flowers and plants for patients to enjoy next to their bed.

Food and drinks

Food is available for visitors in Dulcie's cafe or from our canteen out of hours. Tea, coffee and drinks are available from the Inpatient Unit kitchen.

Pets are welcome
