Despite the recent changes to 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, including wearing a facemask in Trust buildings at all times. 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 of appointment times will be considered in exceptional circumstances, such as at end of life or to give essential care. This will be at the discretion of the nurse in charge.
Please see full details below.
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 we would encourage all visitors to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (if medically able to do so) as we know this helps reduce the risk of spreading the virus to those who are more vulnerable.
