In light of national guidance to help further prevent the spread of coronavirus, we have temporarily suspended visits to all of our inpatient wards*, with effect from today (Wednesday 25 March 2020).
You cannot visit any patient being cared for by the Trust.
We appreciate that this is a difficult decision but it’s important that we protect the people in our care, as well as our staff. We know keeping in touch with family and friends is important so we’re looking at ways we can offer this including tablets on wards to facilitate ‘virtual’ visiting and friends.
We do not know how long these measures will be in place but we will continue to update you on the situation.
*We recognise that there may be some exceptions, for example end of life care, and decisions will be made on a case by case basis.
