Can I have someone stay with me?

The room is primarily for the use of patients.  However, as they are twin rooms, you are allowed to have someone stay with you as long as they are 16 years of age or over.

The rooms are free of charge to patients but there is a standard charge for the room of £14.50 per night for anyone accompanying them.

Relatives etc are only allowed to stay in these rooms if the patient is also staying in them. There is separate accommodation available in the hospital for relatives etc only. For further information on this, contact:
