Opening Hours

Emergency Department open 24 hours.

Visiting hours are between 8am – 8pm, with a rest period between 1pm – 3pm. During the rest period, staff will return patients to their beds, close blinds and quieten the ward. We ask that relatives and visitors respect this period by vacating the ward or remaining quiet so that patients can sleep or rest if needed.


There is an ATM on Level 2. From the main entrance, walk through the main foyer towards the Directory board and the ATM is on your right opposite the toilets. The vending machines are next to the ATM.
