Our emergency department is open 24 hours a day. Check if this is the right place for you to go here.

Visiting hours

We encourage friends and family to visit patients. However, patients can get tired very quickly. For this reason, we ask that no more than 2 people visit at any one time.

On most wards visiting hours are from 2.30pm to 4pm and 7pm to 8pm. Some wards have different or restricted visiting times. You can find individual ward visiting hours and contact details below.

If you're unable to attend during visiting hours, talk to the member of staff in charge of the ward to arrange an alternative time to visit.
