Change to visiting hours during Ramadan

To support carers and visitors observing Ramadan, we are extending visiting hours on all adult in-patient wards until 10pm.

During the month of Ramadan, Muslim’s abstain from eating, drinking, and smoking between dawn and sunset and is a time of self-reflection. The meal that they break their fast with after sunset is called Iftar.

We understand that due to the timings of Iftar, it can be challenging for those who are fasting to visit loved ones in hospital, during our usual visiting hours between 2pm and 8pm.

Extending visiting to 10pm will apply to all visitors at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital until Wednesday 10 April.

Two visitors per patient are allowed on adult in-patient wards and extra flexibility continues to be allowed for end-of-life patients and for carers.

Our guidance around not visiting if you have any respiratory symptoms such as a cough or high temperature, or norovirus symptoms including vomiting and diarrhoea remains in place. If you have any questions, please speak to the ward team.
