Whiston Hospital Visiting Times

​​Visiting times are displayed on the wall or the door near the ward entrance. If you move wards, please check the visiting times as they may be different. Where appropriate,​ flexible times can be arranged, please speak to your nurse. Quiet times and ward rounds vary from ward to ward and it would be helpful if visits could be avoided during these times.
