Visiting hours

Parents and carers may visit their children on an inpatient ward at any time. PCH's inpatient wards are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

The Surgical Short Stay Unit (Ward 3C) opens at 7am on Mondays and operates 24 hours a day, Monday to Friday. The ward closes at 1pm on Saturdays and is closed on Sundays.  

Other visitors are permitted from 7am to 12pm and 2pm to 7.30pm, seven days a week.

Some wards such as Paediatric Critical Care and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit have additional criteria for visitors. Ask nursing staff on the wards for specific details about visiting hours.

All visitors must be free from infectious diseases and visiting children must be accompanied by an adult. 

All inpatient wards have a family lounge, where parents, carers and immediate family members are welcome to visit and relax. The family lounges have kitchen and dining facilities and bathroom facilities.
