Visiting Times

At 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.

You can find the ward telephone numbers here.
