Visitors & family/whaanau

Visiting hours

In general visiting hours are between 2:00pm to 8:00pm. Children are welcome, but need to be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.

There are some specialised services in the hospital where visiting hours may vary, for example the Delivery Suite, or Intensive Care Unit.  In these cases signs will be in place with the relevant information. If you are not sure, please feel free to contact us at the numbers listed below:

Partners in Care

We welcome Partners in Care (those who are whaanau/family or friends chosen by our patient) to our wards at all times. Please introduce yourself to our staff. Sometimes there are reasons to restrict numbers by the bedside. Discussions with our clinical staff will clarify these times and our reasons. This can happen in any of our wards, but it is most likely to occur in our specialised areas.

Please ask at reception if you have any queries.
