Things to remember when visiting:

Please do not visit hospital if you have had symptoms of diarrhoea and/or vomiting in the last 48 hours. Use soap and water or the hand gel provided when entering and exiting any clinical areas. Remember to not sit on patient beds, or bring any live flowers/plants. Before bringing any food or snacks to the wards, we ask that you check with a member of staff if there are any patients suffering from allergies which might be affected (e.g. a nut allergy).

Like most hospitals, car parking is limited. During the week you may find it easier to park after 4pm. Please remember to bring some change for the pay and display meters.
