Patients at Broadmoor benefit greatly from keeping in touch with their families and friends while they are in hospital and we encourage visits from family and friends.
Booking your visit
Please book all visits in advance by contacting the hospital reception, at least three days before the day on which you want to visit, on 01344 754565.
Visits including children should be booked using the same system, but there are specific rules for these visits. For information about child visits, please see below.
When you book, please give us details of any other people visiting with you. Only visitors who are approved on a patient’s visit list can enter the hospital. There’s only space for three visitors per patient at any one time in the visits centre.
We’ll send written confirmation of the visit to the person making the booking and we’ll also make sure the patient knows the details.
If you’re coming in for a Mental Health Tribunal (MHT) or care programme approach (CPA) meeting, you can also book a visit with a patient for the same day via reception. Please give us three days’ notice if you would like to do this.
