As of Monday 21 February 2022, the trust’s visiting guidance will now allow one visitor per patient, to be booked in advance by contacting the nurse in charge of the ward.

If the patient is a child, one parent, guardian or carer will be permitted to stay with them in the hospital while they are an inpatient. This guidance will not impact on the arrangements in place for maternity services where birthing partners are already permitted, or for patients in receipt of palliative or end of life care for whom visitors have been allowed throughout the pandemic.

All visitors are required to do a (negative) lateral flow test on the same day as attending hospitals. If possible, please bring photo evidence with you of your negative result or a text or email from the national lateral flow reporting service.
