"This website sucks."

About: Stepping Hill Hospital

I have looked up this site in order to find out what times are allowed to visit a friend who had just been admitted. Saving time looking through I typed visiting hours in the search box n got 2,500+ hits. Gave up looking after page ? Lost count. All I got was what times the mental health nurse Could come out to visit me, how to manage mental health problems, everything to combat stress band anxiety and the signs and symptoms of mental health. By the time I find out what times I am permitted to visit my friend he will either be discharged or I will be admitted myself into the mental health department. Cheers for the lack of information. It's now 9pm so im presuming I can't visit now tonight! The answers to your next two questions if were possible would be:-didn't get chance -didn't get the opportunity.

Response from Stepping Hill Hospital

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you found it difficult to find our visiting times. Stockport NHS Foundation Trust’s visiting times can be found in the following section of our website: https://www.stockport.nhs.uk/28/visiting-times. However, it sounds like you wanted information on visiting the mental health service. Mental health services at Stepping Hill are provided by Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust. You will need to contact Pennine Care for information on their visiting times. Their telephone number is 0161 716 3000. I hope this information is helpful.
