Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

We had previously advised that our limited visiting arrangements, enabling patients to have a visitor for one hour, would be kept under review. Given increasing COVID-19 cases in our local region, visiting has been suspended.

From 18 June 2021 visiting arrangements will once again be limited to the following exceptional circumstances:

  • A maximum of two visitors for patients who are in their last hours / days and receiving end of life care.
  • One carer that is supporting someone with a mental health issue, cognitive impairment such as dementia, a learning disability or autism, where not being present would cause the patient to be distressed.
  • In exceptional cases, consideration will be given to individual requests following a comprehensive risk assessment.
