Harefield Hospital wards

ACCU (Acorn and Oak wards)

Visiting times are between 10am-1pm and 3 pm-8pm. As space is limited, we can only allow two visitors at each bedside at a time. Patient's rest hour happens between 1pm-3pm, so visitors are not allowed to stay on the ward during this time. 

If you would like to bring children to a visit, please contact the nurse in charge beforehand. 

Other ward visiting times are:

  • Cedar ward: 3 pm - 5 pm and 6 pm - 8 pm 
  • Maple ward: 3 pm - 8 pm
  • HDU: 3 pm - 5pm and 6 pm - 8 pm
  • ITU: 11 am - 1 pm and 3 pm - 7:30 pm 
  • Rowan and Fir tree wards: 9 am - 12 pm and 2 pm - 8 pm 

The nurses on the wards have responsibility for their patients’ care and may on occasion ask visitors to stay for a limited period only or restrict the number of people present at any one time. 

Some of the wards have a ‘rest period’, which you are asked to respect.
