Visiting

Visits by family and friends are very important.

Staff on each ward or unit will let individuals, their friends and relatives know the arrangements for visiting, including times and the special areas you can sit during visits.

If it is not felt a visit would be in a person’s best interests, staff do have the right to refuse admission.

Children (this is classed as anyone under the age of 18 years) are welcome to visit but if you are planning to bring or invite children to visit, please let staff know in advance as there may be special family areas that can be used and paperwork that needs to be completed.

On some occasions it may be in the best interest of the child that visits are delayed, but staff will be happy to discuss arrangements with you and address any concerns you might have.

We are a smoke free Trust. This means that no one, including staff, visitors and people in our inpatient units can smoke in any of our hospital buildings or Trust grounds.
