Visiting times

Visitors are welcome between 11am and 8pm. However, we operate a protected mealtime policy.  This means that whilst patients are having their meals, all non-essential activities on the ward will stop in order to reduce interruptions.  The nurses, ward assistants and nutrition assistants will be available to help those patients who require extra support with eating and drinking during these times.

We kindly ask that visitors speak to the ward coordinator about whether it would be beneficial to be present during mealtimes.  Often, those who have had a stroke can experience difficulties around eating and drinking due to altered swallow and cognition.  Therefore, having fewer people present can help reduce distractions and allows for a calmer environment for patients to eat and drink.
