Visiting a Patient

Visiting times

Visiting times vary from ward to ward as patients and staff in different specialties have different requirements and duties. There are special arrangements for maternity patients and their partners but extended families are asked to observe the official visiting times. Ward staff will always provide you with visiting times for your ward.

When visiting please remember to:

  • Please buzz for access to the ward and cleanse your hands with alcohol gel before being entering.
  • Visiting is restricted to two people at a time.
  • We do not allow flowers on any of our wards due to the risk of infection.

Thank you for your co-operation. 

John's Campaign

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust is committed to providing excellent person-centred care. We understand that hospitals can be overwhelming and challenging places, particularly for people living with dementia, so welcome carers to continue their supportive role by working in partnership with our staff, to help us deliver the best care possible.

If you are a carer, please speak to a member of staff on the ward who can give you a Carers Card so that you can continue your caring role and visit outside of our usual visiting times.

National Audit of Dementia Care

The National Audit of Dementia is running again this year. If you are visiting someone with dementia in hospital in England or Wales between 4 June and 21 September 2018, please ask a member of hospital staff for a questionnaire to complete. You can also complete the questionnaire online at www.CarerQ.org.uk.

It is anonymous, and all feedback goes straight to the NAD Project Team. You will need to provide the name of the hospital the person you care for is in/has been in at the start of the questionnaire.

Everyone who completes a questionnaire will have the opportunity to enter a prize draw to win one of five £50 vouchers for a high-street store of their choice.
