Visiting times

Visiting times at Medway Hospital vary across wards and will also reflect individual needs and circumstances. Details of the visiting times for each ward are given below. Patients and visitors are also encouraged to check with ward staff about the arrangements for their particular ward.


Please note that we have a protected meal times policy in the hospital which means that visitors will not be able to visit the wards at these times. Protected meal times are 12.30pm to 1.30pm and 5.30pm to 6.30pm.
