No hospital visiting for Caerphilly residents

There has been a significant rise in positive coronavirus cases in the Caerphilly Borough during the past week. In order to protect our patients, public and staff, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board has deemed it essential to endorse a ‘No Visiting’ policy on all our wards and patient areas by Caerphilly residents with immediate effect.

We fully recognise the importance of contact between patients, their families and carers, but we must take measures to prevent the spread of this infection.

As a Health Board, we fully appreciate this is incredibly difficult, please be assured these restrictions will be under constant review, the following exceptions will apply:

Visiting should be permitted for:

  • Women in labour (a birthing partner, from their household)
  • A nominated parent or guardian for a child in hospital and for neonates
  • Someone with a mental health issue, a learning disability or autism, where not being present would cause the patient/service user distress. This will be assessed by the Ward Sister and visiting options secured in advance.
  • Patients at end of life care. Permission to visit will be secured in advance (where possible), this will be one visitor at a time for a specified amount as agreed with the Ward Sister.


Thank you for your co-operation and support during these very difficult and unprecedented times.
