Following the Government’s announcement regarding partial lockdown, it is with regret that we will now have to suspend all hospital visiting on all our sites to protect our patients and reduce the spread of infection.
The only exception is a birth partner for maternity, a nominated parent on restricted visiting for child patients/neonates and discretion for patients at End of Life.
We are increasing Administrative Support on the Wards in an attempt to manage anticipated additional telephone calls, but strongly encourage relatives to phone their loved ones directly and use Social Media where possible.
Patients can access free Wi-Fi to support “Virtual Visiting”.
We recognise this decision may cause concern, but it has been made in the interest of patient safety. We value and need your support during this difficult time.
