Relatives, friends and carers visiting patients at Chesterfield Royal Hospital have given the recent trial of a longer visiting day the thumbs-up for convenience, improved communication and for allowing them to be more involved in their loved-one’s care.

For the last three months, a handful of wards have been open throughout various times of day – to see what the impact would be. And over the Christmas holidays, all the general medical, surgical and orthopaedic wards opened their doors to visitors for more hours a day - to help people keep in touch over the festive season.

Both pilots have proved such a success these longer visiting hours are to be extended with immediate effect.
