Meal times

We operate a protected meal time system. This means that visiting is not allowed during this time as nutrition is an important part of a patient’s recovery. If you would like someone visiting to support you during meal times, please discuss this with the nurse in charge.

Our meal times are 12:30 – 13:15 and 17:00 – 18:00.

Visiting times


Personal belongings

We advise that personal belongings of high value or large sums of money are not brought into the ward. The hospital does not take responsibility for the safety of belongings for those patients who wish to keep them with them unless handed in and a receipt obtained. A hospital safe is available for those patients who do not have relatives to take these items home or who are unable to consent to taking responsibility for their possessions. We ask that if you take an item home from your relative than please inform the nursing staff so that this can be recorded.


Information on parking can be found here .
