Visiting Hours

Visiting hours have been reviewed in accordance with the current regulations. 

Please note the visiting hours can change at short notice and this is at the discretion of each hospital, dependent on the local COVID-19 situation and advice from hospital management and doctor COVID committees. 

COVID WARD Regrettably, visitation in areas in which confirmed, or suspected, COVID-19 patients are being cared for remains suspended. 

For critically ill patients in these areas limited visitation with special permission of hospital management may be allowed, and in consultation with the treating doctor. Special measures will be required in such situations to protect the health of the visiting family members and hospital employees. Our nurses are sensitive to the strain on family members in such situations and will do their best to accommodate both the needs and the safety of family members. Our nurses will continue to keep family members updated on the condition of the patient and, wherever possible, will facilitate communication with patients through electronic means such as video calls.

  • General wards: One visitor per day for a maximum of 30 minutes.
  • Paediatric Wards/ICU: One parent will be permitted to sleep in with an admitted paediatric patient. The other parent will be permitted to visit for 30 minutes per day.
  • Nursery and Neonatal ICU: Parents may visit together once a day. The duration of the visit will be at the discretion of the unit manager.
