Special care baby unit
Parents and siblings of the baby are welcome anytime during the day and evening, grandparents are welcomed between 8am and 8pm and all other visitors between 12 midday and 8pm.
To limit the risk of infection to our babies we ask that no small children (under 10 years) visit unless they are a sibling of the baby or it has been arranged with the team. Due to limited space around the cot areas there is a maximum of four visitors allowed at any one time
Ward Round is between 9am to 11am each morning where you can speak to your babies doctor, however if you wish to speak to a doctor outside of these times this can easily be arranged, just ask your nurse.
