Alexandra Hospital Wards

Ward 17 11 15 133

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.

Arrangements can always be made for visitors travelling long distances or where it is difficult to see patients within the above times - please speak to your nurse about this.

The number of visitors allowed around a patient's bed at a time is usually no more than 2 people. This is to ensure patients do not become unduly tired and for health and safety reasons. It is sensible to avoid bringing young children into hospitals. Please discuss this with the ward staff. We do ask that visiting children are controlled to prevent disturbing other patients.

  • 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.  
  • If you are feeling unwell we ask that you help to reduce the risk of infection to patients by staying away until you feel better.

Protected mealtimes

All non-urgent clinical activity stops during mealtimes to allow patients to eat their meals in a calm and relaxing environment without unnecessary interruption.

Please avoid visiting at mealtimes unless you would like to help your relative or friend with their meal.
