Visiting hours in the hospitals vary among the wards or units. All external doors are locked from 8.30pm

We ask visitors to:

  • respect other patients and families in the same room
  • wait patiently for assistance from staff who may be busy attending to patients
  • call in advance if wanting to visit a family member after 8.30pm.

 

All children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
