Current Visiting arrangements

Visiting remains open to one named visitor per patient, who has been agreed in advance with a ward. If you have any questions around visiting please speak to staff on the ward who can talk you through the process.

The following measures also remain in place:

Visitors must wear a face covering whilst in any communal areas of the hospital.

Those visiting clinical areas, such as wards, will be asked to remove their face covering when entering and will instead be issued with a surgical face mask, which must be worn in its place. When leaving these areas, the surgical face mask must be removed and the face covering worn again.

Visitors must not attend if they have any possible symptoms of the virus, such as a new cough; a sore throat; or a loss of taste or smell.

Strict social-distancing and hygiene measures will be in place to limit the risk of the virus spreading within our hospitals. These include visitors being prevented from bringing presents such as flowers, food parcels or balloons into the hospital.
