Visiting

Visiting Hours

Each ward has individual visiting hours, but they are generally in the afternoon and evening.

In maternity the mothers’ own children may visit, but other children are not permitted to visit within the maternity unit.

All inpatient wards at Hampshire Hospitals have adopted John’s Campaign, which allows the carers of patients with dementia to stay in hospital with their loved ones if they wish.

Do not visit patients in hospital if you are feeling unwell

For most people, flu, diarrhoea and vomiting can be safely managed at home by drinking plenty of fluids to remain hydrated. For some of our patients, though, flu, diarrhoea and vomiting can be very serious.

You can help us by not visiting if you have experienced diarrhoea or vomiting in the last 48 hours, or not visiting if you have flu-like symptoms.  Please contact ward staff if you are unwell and unsure if you should visit.

If you are experiencing flu or diarrhoea and vomiting it is far better to stay out of hospital, manage your symptoms and limit your contact with other people, particularly the elderly and babies. If symptoms worsen or you are worried, contact NHS 111 or telephone your GP.  Our Emergency Departments are only for those patients who require urgent and emergency medical attention.
