Visiting Hours


Visiting hours are 1.00 pm to 7.30 pm.

Due to the nature of critical care, you may occasionally be asked to wait outside before you visit in order for our colleagues to carry out particular care needs or treatment. You will be allowed in as soon as possible.

We do understand that it is not always possible to visit during the above hours. Please speak with the nurse to discuss alternative arrangements.

The best time to see the Critical Care Consultant to ask any questions you have is in the afternoon/early evening, but we will try our best to answer any questions whatever the time. Please let your bedside nurse know if you would like to discuss anything.

We would also ask that we limit the number of phone calls into the unit to one nominated family member/friend. By doing this, it reduces different versions of similar issues being miscommunicated

The unit will have a nurse in charge of each shift who can be contacted at all times.
