Group Manager - Hospital of St Cross:

Juliet Starkey

The Trust is currently trialling extended visiting hours between December 2017 and March 2018. The visiting hours at the Hospital of St Cross are now as follows:

  • Monday to Friday: 2pm - 4pm (Hoskyn, Mulberry and Oak Wards only at the Hospital of St Cross), 6.30pm - 8pm (all wards at the Hospital of St Cross)
  • Saturday and Sunday and Bank Holidays: 10am - 9:30pm (at the Hospital of St Cross)

We recognise and respect the important role played by families and carers in helping patients recover. Therefore, if you wish to extend your visiting time, or visit outside of the official visiting times, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the nursing team.

We ask that there are no more than two visitors per bed at any one time. This helps us to maintain privacy, dignity and an environment that supports all of our patients to rest and recover. Please ask the nurse in charge in regards to children under the age of 12 years visiting relatives on the ward.


As a carer (and with the patient's permission), your support in the delivery of care will be welcomed and valued. However, we do ask that you work with our ward staff to ensure you have the rest and support you need to maintain your own health and wellbeing whilst your family member is in our care.


All visitors are reminded to use the alcohol hand rub provided when entering and leaving wards.


When you visit St Cross you will find that all of our departments and wards are clearly sign posted. Many of our visitors also find our volunteers helpdesk located by security very helpful when asking for directions.
