General information

South Molton is a  community hospital, built in 1988. We have one inpatient ward, Hugh Squier Ward. An out-patient/physiotherapy department was added in 1997.

Many different out-patient clinics are also held here, including cardiology, neurology, gynaecology, rheumatology, ophthalmology, general surgery, general medicine, urology and various other services.

Visiting times

We operate opening visiting hours until 9pm, but not during the protected mealtimes (see below).

Mealtimes for patients

Breakfast: 8am – 9am
Lunch: 12.15pm – 1.15pm
Tea: 5.15pm – 6.15pm

During protected mealtimes, visitors are not permitted, unless they are helping you to eat. This allows patients time to eat their meal in peace.

 

Snacks and newspapers

League of Friends volunteers bring a trolley around the hospital each week. You can buy toiletries, stationery and some food and drink items.

Phone

The ward cordless phone can be taken to a patient for an incoming call.

Parking

On-site parking is free, but limited. Please ask your visitors to be sensitive to local residents when leaving their vehicles to come and see you.

League of Friends

South Molton Hospital League of Friends plays an important role in supporting staff at the hospital. As well as running the trolley, members raise money for ‘extras’ to support patients.

If you would like to find out more or to help, please ask at the hospital reception for League of Friends contact details.
