Visiting a Patient

Visiting a Patient

Visitors do not need to book a slot before they come into New Cross, Cannock Chase and West Park Hospitals.

A maximum of two visitors per patient will be welcomed by The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust (RWT) and they can simply turn up to the wards during the visiting hours applicable.

Visiting times will be between 2pm and 8pm for medical wards and surgical wards will be between 1-3pm and 5-7pm.

The surgical wards are:

A Wards - 5, 6, 9, 12, 14
B Wards - 7, 8, 14
D Ward - 7
Hilton Main

For Children’s, Maternity, and ICCU, visiting times may differ and people are advised to check with these wards directly via the hospital switchboard on 01902 307999.

We encourage all visitors to wear masks to support us with reducing COVID transmissions. There are face masks available at all main hospital entrances and wards. Visitors will be supported to wear a face mask if that is their wish.

If you have any of the recognised symptoms of COVID-19 which are a raised temperature, new, continuous cough or loss of/change in taste or smell please do not come into the hospital. And if you have norovirus symptoms of sickness and diarrhoea you should also keep away to minimise infection risk.
