Visiting hours

The Mid North Coast Local Health District acknowledges that the wellbeing and safety of patients is enhanced by support from family, carers and close friends.  

All MNCLHD facilities now have flexible visiting times based on individual patient needs.  However, it is important that patients are able to have adequate rest,  if you wish to visit between the hours of 8pm and 7am it would be appreciated if you consult with nursing staff prior to visiting.
