Information for visitors

To protect both our patients and our staff caring for them, we are now not allowing any visitors to our hospitals. 

Please consider other ways of keeping in touch, like phone or video calls.  There are currently only two exceptions to this:

  • Patients at the end of life - in these circumstances, the ward manager may allow one visitor to spend time with their loved one
  • In-patients at Prospect Park - children will be allowed to visit their patient in the on-site family room

On arrival at any of our wards or departments, visitors should immediately wash their hands and report to the nurse in charge. 

You must wear a face covering and maintain a 2-metre social distance throughout your visit.

All visitors must also wash their hand or use the hand gel when they leave.

What to do next when you return home

Take a look at the following NHS guides if you’re returning home from hospital, or from A&E or a GP consultation.
