Visiting Times

At the Royal Hallamshire Hospital visiting times are 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, 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.
