Information for Visitors

If you are planning to visit a child or family in the hospital.

Visiting Hours

Visiting hours are from 8.00am to 8.00pm unless other arrangements are made with the charge nurse. Most wards have a rest period from 1.00pm to 3.00pm, and we would ask that you avoid visiting during this time (unless you are the parents or caregivers of a child or young person in hospital).

For visiting NICU, see the parent information factsheets on the Newborn Services website.

Please respect the privacy of others and only visit the child you have come to see. If you are not visiting a child, you require an appointment with the department you wish to visit.

See 'Where We Are' for information on how to get to the hospital and where to park. 'Whats at Starship' will tell you which level of the hospital wards are located on.

Infection Control

If family members/visitors are unwell with a cold, 'flu or 'flu-like symptoms, or a "tummy bug", or have been in contact with anyone with an infectious disease such as measles, mumps, rubella or chickenpox in the last two to three weeks, please do not visit Starship. If you are unsure, check with the enquiries desk in the ward before you visit anyone.
