Wards and visiting
Your visitors are very welcome at the hospital and are encouraged, where appropriate, to take an active part in your daily routine: you might welcome their help with non-medical activities such as dressing, hair-brushing, etc.
Visitors are reminded that the car parks at Papworth Hospital are pay and display. Please ensure that you have purchased and displayed a ticket. Details of car parking and charges are available here.
Sometimes exceptional circumstances arise where patients wish to have visitors outside of the formal visiting times: ward staff will do their best to accommodate this. Please check in advance with the nurse in charge of the ward whether children under the age of two years are allowed to visit you.
Visitors are requested not to lie or sit on the beds and to return all spare chairs to their designated storage area after use.
All visitors to the wards are requested to use the hand hygiene gel which is located at the entrance to each ward.
Mornings can be very busy in Critical Care and visitors are advised to avoid this time if possible, as they will be asked to leave during ward rounds etc.
