Responsible Visiting

Please help protect your friends and relatives

  • Do not visit if you have tested positive for the coronavirus, have coronavirus symptoms, are self-isolating or have received a shielding letter
  • You cannot accompany someone to an appointment unless you are a carer, they are under 18 or you have been advised otherwise
  • Call ahead to the ward to let them know you are coming and to confirm that you do not have coronavirus symptoms
  • Do not visit if feeling unwell with sickness, diarrhoea, fever, sore throat or flu
  • Do not visit for at least 48 hours after symptoms have stopped if you have had diarrhoea and/or vomiting. Spreading nasty bugs to people who are already unwell may mean they become more poorly or take longer to recover
  • Do not sit on patient beds
  • Wash hands regularly with soap and warm water and use the hand gel provided especially after using the toilet
  • It is ok to ask staff if they have washed their hands
  • Check with staff about bringing in food items. Wrapped sweets are preferable to unwrapped
  • Talk to staff if you have concerns about the cleanliness of the ward or public areas
  • Use public toilets not patient toilets and remember to wash your hands
  • If in doubt ask a member of staff for advice
