Visiting Times

Here at the Jessop we want you and your relatives to have a positive experience. We recognise that birth is a unique social event and that family and friends will be keen to visit. Visiting times are as follows:

Level 3 postnatal and antenatal wards

8am to 8pm. (please speak to the nurse in charge if you need flexibility outside of these times as that can often be arranged)

Visiting on Labour Ward

To ensure the maintenance of security and privacy for all patients on the Labour Ward there are no visiting hours. Birth partners are an important part of the birth process and are welcomed at anytime.

Most women have 1-2 birthing partners to help support them through labour and birth.

Please check with the midwife if you wish to visit someone on the high dependency unit on labour ward.

Any other visitors will be advised to visit during allocated visiting hours on antenatal or postnatal wards following transfer of mum and baby.

You can find the ward telephone numbers here.
