Visiting restrictions - essential visitors only

To help us keep our patients, staff and visitors safe, stop the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and keep our hospitals running, we are restricting visiting to essential visitors only – click here for more information

Visiting Times

The ward visiting times are Conquest Hospital and Eastbourne DGH vary according to each ward. Please visit our hospital pages for a list of wards and their visiting times:

To reduce disturbance for all patients during visiting times, visitors are limited to two per visit on inpatient wards and limited to one person if you are attending for Day Surgery.

You are welcome to bring gifts during your visits. However, due to lack of space and to keep ward areas tidy, flowers should be restricted to small arrangements in oasis only, rather than large bunches needing vases.

Another popular choice is for visitors to buy tokens for Hospedia, the bedside pay-to-use television and telephone system.
