Visiting Times

We have set visiting times to allow us to provide care and for our patients to rest. Recently, our visiting times have had to alter due to the Covid 19 Pandemic and requirements around infection control. For the most up to date information, please read the visitor guidance here

The Older Person's Assessment and Liaison Team provide specialist inpatient therapy assessments and interventions to older people presenting with frailty at RBH. We have a large team of inter-disciplinary therapists and therapy assistants who work across the Frailty Pathway seeing patients who are triaged OPM across RBH.

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 12.30-1.30pm and 5.30-6.30pm.
