We also strongly encourage you to take a lateral flow test before visiting. You can order tests from the Government website or pick up tests from a pharmacy or collection point.
Our staff should also continue to test twice a week using the lateral flow kits and follow all other infection, prevention control measures.
These measures have helped keep people safe from covid, so we can continue to deliver our vital services. They also help others to feel confident in accessing and visiting our services safely.
If you have a raised temperature, new cough, or sudden loss of taste or smell; or you are self-isolating due to a member of your household showing symptoms of covid or you have been contacted by track and trace, please do not visit.
Visitors to wards will still need to book, click the menu below for more details.
Thanks for your help in keeping staff and patients safe.
All visits must still be booked in advance, by contacting the ward or service where your loved one is staying. You can find their contact details using our services search page.
Visits will be for one hour (maximum).
Only one adult from the patient’s immediate family, partner or close friend will be allowed to visit (in some circumstances two visitors from the same household or bubble will be allowed, but this must be agreed in advance with the ward).
In the event of a covid infection on a ward, visiting will be immediately suspended.
We strongly encourage you to take a lateral flow test before visiting. You can order tests from the Government website or pick up tests from a pharmacy or collection point.
If your lateral flow test result is positive, please cancel your visit and follow the government guidance.
Wherever possible, please avoid using public transport when coming to visit.
