Visitor guidance

We are asking the public to limit visiting and to consider other ways of keeping in touch, like phone calls.

Visitors must be immediate family members or carers.

They should not visit any health and care settings, and this applies to all inpatient, diagnostic and outpatient areas, if they are:

  • unwell, especially if they have a high temperature or a new, persistent cough
  • vulnerable as a result of their medication, a chronic illness or they are over 70 years of age.

Visitors should be limited to one per patient unless:

  • the patient is receiving end-of-life care
  • the visitor needs to be accompanied – accompanying visitors should not stay in patient, ward or communal areas, and this applies to inpatient and outpatient settings

No children under 12 should be visiting without the ward sister or charge nurse’s prior permission.

Hospitals and other health and care settings will restrict visiting to one hour per day at designated visiting times.

We ask for the public’s help in respecting these rules.

 Visiting times on this ward will be 18.30 – 19.30.
