Visitor Information

Patients requiring a higher level of care are looked after in the HDU, many are seriously ill and rest plays an important part in their recovery.  We try to keep the noise and disturbance to a minimum to facilitate this. Visiting is restricted to close family members for short periods of time only. Visitors are required to use the buzzer and wait for attention. Children are not allowed in HDU unless by arrangement with the Nurse in charge. The designated time for rest is 12:00-14:00.
