Additional restrictions for visitors
We are still unable to allow any visitors on site, unless there are exceptional circumstances. For example in maternity or children’s departments, or for those patients who are in the last few days of their lives, on a case-by-case basis. There may be some other exceptions to this on compassionate grounds, which we will discuss with you on an individual basis. There is more information available in the national visiting guidance.
We recognise that reduced visiting access for carers and families of patients can be difficult and stressful. In the last two weeks, the Trust has reinstated the next of Kin help lines to support the clinical areas in maintaining contact with families where patients themselves have difficulties doing so independently. More information about our next of kin lines on each hospital site can be found on the hospital specific tabs below.
