Keeping you Covid safe
To keep yourself and those around you safe, please act responsibly:
- Wash or sanitise your hands upon arrival and frequently.
- Mask wearing is optional in our hospitals for patients and visitors. There may be some circumstances where face masks are required, such as when visiting patients with a suspected or confirmed Covid or flu infection, which you may be informed of prior to attending our hospitals or on arrival in ward areas.
- If you are coming for an appointment, please come no earlier than 15 minutes beforehand and leave promptly afterwards.
- Do not call to check about an appointment. We will contact you directly if there are any changes or cancellations you need to be aware of.
Before you arrive at hospital, please make sure you tell us if you have any special needs.
Please bring any medicines, tablets or inhalers that you take, including prescriptions.
You will see many different members of staff on the wards.
We serve 3 daily meals on all our wards. Where possible, local produce is used.
The Learning Disability Liaison Nurse Service supports anyone with diagnosed learning disabilities and/or autism over 16 years old.
Please read our Visiting Times Policy for guidance on our visiting arrangements.
