Restricting visitors to our hospital

To minimise exposure during the COVID-19 pandemic, visitors are not allowed into the hospital except in exceptional circumstances. This means if someone drives you to the hospital for your appointment they will not be able to accompany you into the hospital.

After your appointment they can collect you but will not be able to come inside of the hospital. All of our hospitals have parking facilities and we would encourage you to re-join them in the car park. If you need additional help a member of the BMI team will support you.

BMI The Highfield Hospital has 47 beds with most rooms offering the privacy and comfort of en-suite facilities, satellite TV and telephone. The hospital has four theatres and an Extended Recovery Area.

These facilities combined with the latest in technology and on-site support services, enable our consultants to undertake a wide range of procedures from routine investigations to complex surgery. This specialist expertise is supported by caring and professional medical staff, with dedicated nursing teams and Resident Medical Officers on duty 24 hours a day, providing care within a friendly and comfortable environment.

All our bedrooms are for single occupancy and many offer the comfort of en-suite facilities with a bath or shower. They also have satellite television and a telephone for your personal use. There is, of course, immediate access to nursing support via the nurse call system and rooms are supplied with piped oxygen and suction.

Our range of nutritious menus is designed to tempt even the smallest appetite. Should you require a special diet, our Head Chef will be pleased to discuss this with you personally.

Visiting hours are flexible. However, we usually ask that visitors leave by 10pm, in order not to disturb patient recovery. We encourage parents to stay overnight with their children and facilities are available upon request.
