Visiting Times

At the Northern General Hospital visiting times are normally between 8am to 8pm. (Please speak to the nurse in charge if you need flexibility outside of these times as that can often be arranged)

However, some wards have different visiting times to suit the needs of their patients and 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.

You can find the ward telephone numbers here.
