Whilst we understand that a new baby is an exciting time for the whole family, we are committed to protecting the privacy and dignity of our new mothers.  We therefore request that there should be no more than three visitors per bed at any one time (including partner).

It is important to minimise the risk of infection to newborn babies, so we also ask families not to bring any children under age 5 onto the ward (except siblings)


Parents of babies in Special Care may visit at any time

All other visitors: 3.30pm – 4.30pm and 6.30pm – 7.30pm

No children other than brothers and sisters of babies in Special Care Baby Unit may visit


Thank you for your co-operation. The visiting policy is for the security and safety of mothers on the wards.
