Hospital visiting restrictions update
From the 26 April, local visiting restrictions will be relaxed from essential visits only to everyone in hospital being able to receive at least one named visitor.
For those visiting a patient in hospital infection control measures will remain in place, including physical distancing in communal areas, face coverings, hand hygiene stations, restricted movement around the hospital, and a clear instruction that visits should not take place if the visitor has COVID-19 symptoms or is isolating. Current arrangements, including guidance on essential visiting criteria and FAQS, can be found here
