What are the Visiting Hours for New Victoria Hospital?
Every department at New Victoria Hospital has a different visitor policy. Please read below for more information.
To protect our patients, we need to limit the number of hospital visitors.
To protect patients' privacy and guarantee a safe recovery, visitors are not allowed in the Day Unit.
Family members and friends are welcome to wait in the main reception areas. In exceptional circumstances, one visitor can be allowed in the Day Unit.
Alexandra Ward (overnight patients)
Visiting hours are between 10am and 9pm. You can receive family members, friends or carers between 10am and 9pm with the limit of two persons per day. Only in exceptional circumstances, one carer can be allowed to stay overnight.
If you are attending an appointment in one of our Outpatient Departments, you can come in with companions.
Guidelines for Visitors
- Please wash your hands and use the alcohol gel provided.
- Please do not bring in any cooked food that needs storing or reheating.

How Many Visitors Can I Have?

- Patients who are staying overnight are allowed up to two visitors in one day.
Can Very Young Children Visit?
It is best if you only see very young children once you have left the hospital. This is especially true if they have not been immunised.
Is it OK if I Don't Accept Telephone Calls or Visitors?
Yes, absolutely. If you do not wish to receive visitors or telephone calls, please speak with your nurse.
Can My Visitor Eat With Me?
Yes, your visitor can eat with you in your room or bay. Find out more in Dining and Menus.
Can Someone Stay With Me Overnight?
Yes, in exceptional circumstances, this may be possible if:
- You have been assessed as critically ill
- The relative/friend is acting as a carer/interpreter/chaperone
- You are under 18 years of age
What About My Spiritual and Religious Needs?
During your stay, your nurse will ask if you have any specific spiritual or religious requirements. They can contact a local spiritual or religious representative of your faith on your behalf.
