Whether you are a patient, or are a friend or family member visiting a loved one, you can find out more in this section about what to expect when you visit the hospital or one of our community health centres.
We ask that visitors continue to take reasonable precautions to keep everyone safe. Please do not visit if you are unwell – in particular with signs or symptoms of respiratory illnesses such as COVID-19 or flu, diarrhoea and vomiting or other infectious illnesses.
Please can all visitors to our sites help reduce the spread of germs by cleaning their hands before entering our buildings, in particular when visiting our wards and other clinical areas.
Facilities to clean hands are provided at the entrance to all of our clinical areas.
Mask wearing in our hospital and health centres is now a personal choice for patients, staff and visitors, apart from in specific circumstances. We support anyone whose personal choice it is to continue to wear a face mask in any setting.
Face masks are available at our sites and hand gel is provided at most entry/exit points to departments. Patients within any respiratory pathway or with any respiratory symptoms should be encouraged to wear a face mask if tolerated.
