Updates to visiting guidance in light of COVID-19

Posted: 25/03/20

Please note that we have updated our visiting guidance as of 25th March 2020; see below for the latest guidance. 

As the situation with COVID-19 continues to develop rapidly, we need to take all necessary precautions to protect our patients and staff.

All visiting has now been stopped, to protect our patients and staff. You cannot visit any patient being cared for by the Trust.

Exceptions will be made for patients on an end-of-life pathway of care, unless the patient or visitor has tested positive for COVID-19.

Please contact the ward where your loved one is being cared for if you would like further information. Our staff will support patients to use technology to communicate with their families, carers and friends during this difficult time.

Your support is appreciated.  We apologise for any inconvenience, however the safety and wellbeing of our patients is our priority.

The most up-to-date public guidance regarding COVID-19 is always online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.
