Visiting times at Southampton General Hospital

Visitors are asked to observe normal visiting hours between 3pm and 8pm, allowing patients peace and quiet for most of the day.

In particular, visitors are asked to respect the 2pm to 3pm period, which is set aside for patients to rest, and to keep interruptions to a minimum when evening meals are served between 5.30pm and 7pm.

Some wards allow extra visiting hours. Please ask at the the ward.

We ask that you keep the number of visitors to two at any one time, as a large number of visitors may disturb other patients. Children from your own family may visit as part of this number, however it is advisable not to bring very young children.
