Visiting information

Thank you for working with us while we had the challenging task of restricting visitors to keep our patients and staff safe.

In line with changes to the government restrictions, we have changed our visitor restrictions.

Visiting remains restricted in wards where patients have been self-isolating, including those coming in for surgery and in any areas with COVID patients. A flexible approach will continue to be allowed in exceptional circumstances, such as end-of-life care.

Visits must be pre-booked with the ward team. Visitors will be contacted by the ward team to arrange visits. Please do not come in unless you have been authorised to do so, as you may be refused entry.

Visitors must be over 16, and must not have recently travelled to “amber list” or “red list” countries.

Visits are limited to one agreed visitor – an immediate family member or carer – as agreed with the patient. Please make sure you bring confirmation of your visiting appointment to the hospital to ensure you smooth entrance to the hospital.

Please remember that face masks still must be worn while you are within our hospital buildings, unless you are exempt in which case a visor will be offered. We also have social distancing measures in place, such as a restriction on how many people can enter our lifts and screens at our reception desks.

Please follow the information on all posters and the direction of hospital staff.
