Visiting

Friends and family can visit their loved ones at our hospitals any time between 8am-8pm, any day of the week.

Most wards have protected mealtimes to allow patients to eat their meals without disruption. Visiting may not be allowed during these times unless the patient requires help with feeding. Please speak to the ward manager if your visitors have difficulty with these times.

Due to limited space most wards keep the number of visitors to two per patient at any one time. Children are not allowed on some wards, on other wards it is to the discretion of the nurse in charge or matron, please call ahead if you are bringing children visitors.

Please have a look at our Visitors’ Charter, which sets out what you can expect from us during your visit, and also what we would like from you in return.

You can receive telephone calls as an inpatient. Your relatives and friends can either:

  • call the Trust switchboard on 020 8672 1255 and ask for the name of the ward
  • call the ward once you know the direct dial number (which can be found on the Ward Pages)
  • call your bedside terminal which includes a telephone (please note this will show on their phone bill as a premium rate)

To receives cards and letters please advise your relatives and friends that the postal address will be:

Patient Name
Ward
Wing
St George’s Hospital
Blackshaw Road
Tooting
London
SW17 0QT
 

The sender should put their own name and address on the back of the envelope, in case you leave hospital before the letter arrives.

Please note that flowers and plants may not be allowed on some wards for infection control or general housekeeping reasons.

For more information or to book a room, please call the number on your admission letter.
