Responsible Visiting

Please help protect your friends and relatives

  • 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
  • Do not sit on patient beds, please use the chairs provided
  • Follow our visiting policy, especially if restrictions are in place. If you are unable to do so seek advice from ward staff
  • Only 2 visitors should be at the bedside at any one time
  • 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.
