Partners will be able to stay overnight on the Inpatients Ward. Unfortunately we are unable to provide a bed due to space limitations and hospital beds are not suitable for 2 adults. Toilet facilities can be found on Labour Ward. Further to feedback from patients, we request that all visitors remain in suitable daytime clothing and do not sleep in the patients bed.

Please note—in all areas, only the mother's own children are allowed to visit between the hours of 8am and 8pm.
