Visiting times for partners

Partners may visit mothers between 8:00am and 8:00pm daily. If a partner cannot make it then one designated person may take their place, but this must be agreed with the postnatal team beforehand.

Male partners are permitted to stay overnight in single rooms only.  If no single rooms are available, permission should be obtained from the other mothers in the four-bedded bays for a male partner to remain overnight.

Other visitors

Other visitors may visit daily between 3:00pm and 8:00pm. No more than three people can visit each bedside, due to the need to maintain a calm environment and for infection control. Siblings of the newborn are the only children permitted on the ward. Other children under the age of 16 are not permitted to visit, except in exceptional circumstances and with the agreement of the team.
