Visiting sites and inpatient wards

In line with new Government restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), from Friday, 31 December we are no longer allowing visitors into our inpatient hospital wards or mental health units. 

A small number of exceptions will apply – for people visiting their child or those who wish to spend time with a loved one nearing the end of life. However, no more than one visitor per patient will be allowed. Please contact the relevant ward or unit for more details. 

We understand these restrictions are very difficult, but are necessary to slow the spread of the virus and keep people safe. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are offering a virtual inpatient visiting service at a number of our sites, where electronic tablets are given to inpatients to keep in contact with relatives and friends via video. 

Outpatient appointments are continuing to take place where appropriate and where it is safe to do so. We would recommend you come alone unless it is with a child or someone that needs additional support. For further information please review how our services are running or contact the service directly. Prior to attending a site, please refer to your appointment letter or read this guidance for specific details on visiting so you are COVID-19 safe.
