Visiting Hours

We understand that being in hospital can be a difficult experience at the best of times. We do, however, enforce visiting hours for patients and will only deviate from these under certain circumstances. The period outside of visiting hours is in place to allow patients a resting period for recovery and for their safety. The visitor-free period also allows for doctors to visit patients and for our medical staff to conduct their duties as required.
