Coronavirus (COVID-19): Important Information
Visiting Suspended – 27th October 2020
We’ve joined an increasing number of hospitals by taking the decision to suspend all but the most essential on-site patient visiting.
Over the past few weeks this Trust, along with hospitals across the country, has seen a gradual increase in the number of patients that have tested positive for Covid-19. The decision to suspend visiting has been taken to help protect all of our patients, our colleagues and our services to enable us to provide the best care to our patients in a safe environment.
Visiting will be allowed in special circumstances, such as a birthing partner during labour or when receiving end of life care. Please read the information contained in the document below to understand what those restricted circumstances are. We have free NHS Wi-Fi access for video messaging, wards have a number of iPads to ensure that you can stay in touch with a loved one virtually or you can send a Letter of Love to an inpatient on our ward.
We know how worried you’ll be about friends and relatives in hospital - but we’re sure you’ll understand this decision was taken to keep your loved-ones safe in our care.
