Labour and Birth Suite – one birthing partner is permitted to attend with a woman in labour.  That same birthing partner can progress to the postnatal ward for one hour.

Inpatients on the wards –  A maximum of 2 visitors per patient, per day. One person for 1 hour in the morning (11am-12pm) and one person for 1 hour in the evening (6pm-7pm).

Outpatients – For those visiting our hospital for an out-patient appointment, a maximum of 1 adult person may accompany them.

There will be new COVID-19 screening measures in place for every person entering King Edward Memorial Hospital from Monday 23 March 2020. 

Every person entering the main entrance of our hospital will be asked by a member of staff:

  • If they have been overseas in the last 14 days;
  • If they have fever or acute respiratory symptoms;
  • If they have come into close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

Visitors can only enter the hospital via the Bagot Road main entrance; entry is no longer available via Hensman Road.

It is very important that visitors practise social distancing, especially by maintaining a safe distance from those they are visiting, and to follow hand hygiene principles.

Smoking is not permitted anywhere inside the Hospital or outside on Hospital grounds.
