Visiting a patient

We have returned to an open visiting policy across our hospitals. This means that up to two visitors at a time will be welcome to visit patients between 10am and 10pm, seven days a week.

Please note that this policy applies to all adult acute inpatient areas. Separate visiting guidance remains in place in paediatrics, maternity, critical care and high dependency units so please check with the staff in these areas before you visit these areas.

Visitors will be required to wear a surgical face mask (unless exempt) in all clinical areas so that they are afforded the same level of protection as our staff. Masks are provided at all of our hospital entrances for anyone who attends. If you choose to wear a high-filtration FFP2 or FFP3 mask, you will not be required to replace it with one of our surgical masks.

Visitors should continue to follow our other infection control safety measures when visiting our hospitals, including regular hand washing and the use of hand sanitiser.
