From Monday 20th September we will be allowing limited visiting on our adult inpatient wards.
Despite the relaxation of national restrictions, we care for some of the sickest and most vulnerable people in our community and so we will be asking visitors and carers to follow strict infection, prevention and control guidance. Visiting will not take place unless this guidance is followed in full.
We are restricting the number of visitors on any ward at one time to allow for social distancing between patients, visitors and staff. Visiting outside normal hours will be considered in exceptional circumstances, such as at end of life. This will be at the discretion of the nurse in charge.
Visitor Guidance and Restrictions
Visiting will not permitted for anyone with the following:
• Symptoms of COVID-19 or other illness, such as sickness and diarrhoea.
• A positive home (lateral flow) test result or PCR test
• Household contacts of those with COVID-19
• Those who have not received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine (unless they are medically unable to do so).
Visitors are encouraged to undertake COVID-19 testing at home before visiting. Testing kits can be obtained via local pharmacies or through the Government website here.
We have eased some of our current restrictions around visiting to enable you to see loved ones and friends safely while they are being cared for in our hospitals. Please see information on visiting below and the measures we need you to take to protect yourself, our patients and our staff. Thank you for your support and co-operation.
Please note that all visitors MUST have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and have taken a COVID-19 home test before visiting. We care for some of the sickest and most vulnerable people in our community and these restriction are in place to minimise the risk of COVID-19 to our patients and staff.
If you have any questions, or are medically unable to receive the COVID-19 vaccine please speak to the nurse in charge.
