Visiting

You are welcome to visit your loved one at our hospice at any time.

Even though we have wards and employ doctors and nurses, you will find visiting the hospice is very different to visiting a hospital. Our visiting hours are open and we welcome children and pets – it is not unknown to see dogs, cats, parrots and even horses paying a visit.

Visiting hours

We have open visiting at our hospices which means visiting times are not restricted and no limit is placed on the number of people who can come and see a patient on our wards as long as this is the patient’s wish.

Children of all ages are always made to feel welcome at the hospice and it is often nice for other patients to see youngsters visiting on the ward.

If your loved one has a pet they are missing during their stay at the hospice, we would be more than happy for you to bring the animal in for a visit provided you have spoken to one of our nurses about it beforehand.

Relatives’ room

A relatives’ room with an en-suite bathroom is available to family members of very poorly patients who wish to stay overnight.
