Christmas visiting times for Chesterfield Royal Hospital

As a busy acute hospital, Chesterfield Royal is ‘business as usual’ over the Christmas and New Year holidays – looking after people of all ages who need urgent medical and surgical care and of course, not forgetting new mums and their babies.

People who need to be in hospital at holiday time are usually the most poorly; and need plenty of rest to help them recover. When your loved-one is in hospital over the festive period though, they do appreciate that you’ll also want to see them.

The hospital has designated some open visiting days to help; and hope that visitors will appreciate the need to keep standard visiting hours in place at other times, to make sure patients are well-cared for and can be looked after safely and effectively.
