Frequently asked questions

When can I visit a patient?

We embrace open visiting hours at St Michael’s, allowing visitors to spend time with patients without any restrictions on timing or the number of visitors, but always respecting the patient’s preferences.

We try our best to keep bugs to a minimum so would ask that if you have any sypmtoms of cold, flu, covid, nausea & sickness or diarrhoea that you do not visit. It’s really important that we keep our patients, staff and visitors safe.
