We provide care for patients with a variety of medical and surgical conditions and admit both emergency and planned admissions.
Visiting hours
Visiting can be from 8am till 8pm but the Ward tends to be busiest during the mornings when Consultants do their rounds and Nurses give assistance to patients with washing so we would prefer if visiting was limited during this time.
 
Only two visitors are allowed at each bed at any one time. Children under the age of 10 are not allowed in this ward.
 
HDU patients generally require a quiet atmosphere and peaceful environment after surgery. We ask that visitors to the Unit are respectful of the needs of all patients, in relation to privacy, sleep and rest.

If you plan on visiting HDU but you are unwell with cough, cold, flu, diarrhoea or vomiting symptoms, please stay at home. This limits the spread of potential infections to vulnerable people in the hospital. Please do not bring flowers as they pose an infection risk.
