Visiting hours

Visiting hours at the Bristol Royal Infirmary and the Bristol Heart Institute have changed in response to feedback from patients and their families. Visiting is now from 2pm - 8pm every day giving visitors more time to spend with their loved ones. The longer visiting session also gives families greater opportunity to raise any questions they have with doctors and nurses on the wards.

Please help us stop the spread of this winter vomiting bug by complying with this restriction and not visiting friends or relatives if you have had symptoms of diarrhoea and vomiting in the last 48 hours.

  • Visiting times are from 2-8pm each day
  • The number of visitors is limited to two visitors per patient per visiting session
  • Children under the age of 11 will not be admitted to adult wards
  • Visitors may be asked to leave if they become unwell with symptoms of a sudden fever, cough, sore throat, headache, muscle aches or diarrhoea and/or vomiting.

Exceptions to these rules may be authorised by the ward sister/charge nurse or the nurse in charge. Please discuss with ward staff or phone ahead of your visit if you have any questions.
