Surgical wards

You are welcome to have a support person of your choice present as required.

Parents are encouraged to stay with their child and a parent is welcome to stay overnight - please talk with the nurses so that we can accommodate you.

Visiting hours are flexible but we recommend short visits only to enable you to rest and recover.

We may ask visitors to leave your room whilst care or procedures are undertaken but will discuss this with you first.

Most wards encourage a patient rest period between 1 - 3 pm to help your recovery and well being.



  • Partners, baby's siblings and grandparents are allowed flexible visiting times
  • Family/Whanau and friends are welcome between 3pm - 7.30pm each day
