We have introduced a Visitors' Code to help make sure that patients spending time in hospital are able to get enough rest, which will help with their recovery.
Reducing the numbers of people coming in and out of the hospital and asking them to come at particular times of the day will also help us to control infections and will help staff to do their jobs more efficiently.
At the Northern General Hospital and the Royal Hallamshire Hospital visiting times are strictly between 2pm - 3.30pm and 6 - 8pm.
However in special circumstances, for example if you are travelling long distances to visit, please contact the ward manager in advance to discuss other possible arrangements.
Alternatively, most patient bedsides now have a telephone which can make and receive calls and internet access, which are available 24 hours a day.
Visiting times for Jessop Wing can be found here.
We ask you to avoid bringing children under 12 years old to visit unless permission has been sought from the ward manager. Our patients have told us that they find some visits from children disruptive, however in some cases, where the visit is in the best interest of both the patient and the child, these visits may be allowed.
Visiting times are normally between 2.00pm - 3.30pm and
6.00pm - 8.00pm. However, some wards have different visiting
times to suit the needs of their patients. Information about visiting
times for the ward is displayed at or near to the ward entrance.
Outside the normal ward visiting times, visiting may be possible if
it is agreed with the ward staff in advance.
Only two visitors are allowed to be with a patient at any one time.
If larger groups of visitors arrive; they will need to take it in turns.
Children under the age of 12 years will be asked not to visit unless
it is felt to be in the patient’s best interest.* Brothers and sisters to
babies born at the Jessop Wing are allowed to visit.
Naturally, We will always take into consideration the individual needs of
patients. If you need help with visiting outside of the guidelines given
in the Visitors’ Code, please speak with the ward manager.
