Vulnerable adults, children or palliative patients may be accompanied by one adult only

We would like to remind visitors to wash their hands on arrival and on departure from our hospitals, in order to protect our patients and staff.

We still enable virtual visiting, and a daily update phone call to the patient’s next of kin.

In order to continue to offer an opportunity for friends and family to connect with their loved ones, we are making virtual visitation available to our patients via Zoom.  Our IT teams have developed the guides below to help you connect with your loved ones.

For patients attending appointments

  • Sanitise your hands
  • Follow social distancing measures
  • Attend your hospital appointment on your own (unless you require assistance)
  • If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, do not enter until you have contacted the service you are attending to make specific arrangements

People must not visit if they are feeling unwell, especially if they have a high temperature or new persistent cough. Children are also not permitted to visit.
