Blackrock Clinic Patients Visitor Information

Blackrock Clinic hospital visiting restrictions are reviewed in line with best clinical practice. 

To reflect this, current visiting is allowed on compassionate grounds only, and must be arranged through the patient’s nursing team.

Our visiting arrangements are updated to help protect our patients, so thank you for respecting our visiting protocols. Everyone plays a role in keeping our patients safe – it takes a team!

Please come back to this page for the latest updates to patient visiting. Remember Hand Hygiene. Remember to Wear a Mask. Remember to Social Distance.



Flowers are not permitted in patient rooms.

Please understand that the reason for this is “Infection Prevention and Control“. Patient safety is our  priority.
