Changes to Luton and Dunstable University Hospital Next of Kin Liaison Service from Saturday 1 August 2020

Date: 31/07/2020 | Category: General News

Despite the easing of lockdown procedures across the country, we are still not allowing visitors to adult patients in our hospital to prevent the spread of infection.

This will help us to minimise the number of people in the hospital and reduce the risk of spreading infection to protect our patients and staff. There may be some other exceptions to this on compassionate grounds which we will discuss with you on an individual basis.

Changes are being made to support services and we would now ask that, from Monday 1 August, you contact the wards using the direct lines at the end of this message for an update once daily. As with the Next of Kin helpline, updates will only be given to one family member. Friends and family are encouraged to keep in touch with patients, using their own mobile phones where this is possible.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding during these challenging times.
