Normal visiting is until 9.00p.m.every day. The hospital would prefer however if morning visiting could be kept to a minimum, as this is peak clinical care time. Children are very welcome to visit the hospital. Parents and guardians are asked to ensure children are adequately supervised at all times. Weather permitting, we invite visitors to take relatives out in the grounds or to the day centre area.
