Plan your visit
Patients may tire easily, so please consider planning for a short visit only. We also ask visitors to ensure they remain considerate of other patients in keeping noise levels low when visiting and that children are supervised at all times.
Please also consider rescheduling your visit if you feel unwell until your health improves.
Lillies are known to cause allergies in some people, so in the interests of protecting patients, staff and visitors from this known allergen, we do not allow lilies to be bought into any of our hospitals.
We ask that no flowers are brought to patients on Ward 2 East. Alternative gifts such as balloons, cards or artificial gifts are welcome.
Epworth welcomes all other flowers.
