Plan your Visit

Thank you for planning your visit to our healthcare facilities.

In Sydney Local Health District, we welcome visitors to our hospitals throughout the day and evening, and recognise the important role that family, friends and carers play in the lives of our patients and consumers. Visiting can support recovery and wellbeing, and we welcome you to visit when you are able to. 

Some wards or areas of the hospital (for example, Intensive Care and Maternity) may have preferred visiting times to support optimal patient care.  If you’re unsure or would like more information, speak to the clinical team, and/or contact the hospital to confirm.

When visiting we ask that you:

  • follow the directions of staff – including wearing masks when/if required
  • maintain good hand hygiene

If you are unwell or experiencing respiratory symptoms, please avoid visiting patients until you are well. We encourage you to use technology, where possible, to check in with loved ones. Patients are able to access free WiFi in our facilities.

For more information, visit our patient and visitor rights and responsibilities page.

If you are a current patient receiving care (including as an outpatient), please talk to your treating team about your individual circumstances for entering the hospital.
