Visiting times are from 11am to 8pm daily. If you require more flexibility outside the general visiting times, please contact the ward manager or shift coordinator directly.

The Trust supports John's Campaign to enhance the care of our dementia patients. John’s Campaign supports the right of carers and family to stay with patients with dementia in hospital, if they wish to. For more information about this, please speak to the nurse in charge on the ward.

During protected mealtimes, visitors are not permitted, unless they are helping you to eat. This allows patients time to eat their meal without distraction. Protected mealtimes may vary slightly. Please check with the individual ward about times. Visiting outside of these times is at the discretions of the ward manager.

If you wish to be cared for by a member of staff of the same sex as you, please talk to a member of the ward team.
