In order to protect patients, staff and the public we are introducing new visiting arrangements. We want to maintain contact and support between our most vulnerable patients, and those at end of life, their families and carers, whilst ensuring that we take measures that prevent the spread of the infection. These measures reduce the possibility of the virus inadvertently being brought into the hospital and help to keep our staff, patients and visitors safe.
Until further notice, visiting is only permitted for patients who are in their last days/ hours of life receiving end of life care. Visiting is restricted to a maximum of one close family member per patient.
