Visiting times


Open visiting can be arranged with prior arrangement with the nurse in charge.

For the health and safety of our patients, visitors and staff, we ask that you restrict adult visitors to two per bed and that children remain supervised at all times.

Meal times

  • Breakfast: 8.00am-8.30am
  • Lunch: 12.00pm-2.00pm
  • Evening meal: 5.30pm-6.30pm

We have protected meal times but we do actively encourage relatives to come in and assist patients who need help at mealtimes.

We offer a choice of food for every mealtime and requests are made 24 hours in advance of the meal.

A hot drink is usually served at each mealtime and in the evening at approximately 8.00pm.
