Further restrictions on visiting

From today, we are further restricting visiting to our hospital to help tackle the spread of COVID-19 in order to protect both our patients and our staff.

With immediate effect, we will not allow any visitors to our hospital, with a few exceptions:

  • Maternity – one birth partner only. Strictly no children.
  • Paediatrics – one parent/guardian only. Strictly no siblings.
  • Patients at the end of life – in the upsetting and difficult circumstances where patients may be at the end of their life, the decision for visiting will be down to the nurse in charge.

On arrival to any ward or department, all visitors should wash their hands thoroughly (for 20 seconds at least) or use the alcohol gel provided. We would ask that you do the same on leaving the ward.

Thank you for your cooperation.
