Visitors information

 We have returned to our usual visiting guidance across our hospitals but all visitors are asked to continue to wear masks to keep patients and staff safe.

We allow up to two visitors to a bed during visiting hours. On our children's wards, a parent or guardian can stay with a child patient for the duration of their stay.

Where there are visiting restrictions in any of our ward areas, the ward team will let you know on admission.

Visiting times are outlined below, to find out more about an individual ward's visiting processes please call our switchboard team on 0300 303 1573 and ask to be transferred directly to the ward team you require.

Catering is available in our on site restaurants and cafes. For information on this and parking, please scroll to the bottom of this page.

Compassion at the heart of our visiting policy

If you are a parent/carer caring for a sick child, supporting an older patient, or a relative visiting critically ill or dying patients please talk to the nurse in charge of the ward about your specific visiting options. We recognise the important role visitors can play in providing comfort to our patients and assisting their recovery and we will try to be flexible.


Things to know before visiting

Fresh flowers are not permitted in some wards for health and safety reasons. Please check with the ward where the patient is based before bringing in any flowers.

Mobile phones are not permitted in critical care units, intensive care units and theatres.

Smoking is not allowed in any of the hospital buildings at Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester General and Glenfield Hospitals. Patients and visitors may smoke in the red smoking shelters in the grounds of the hospitals. The shelters are for patients and visitors only. Staff must not smoke in hospital buildings or grounds.
