Updates to hospital visiting arrangements – Thursday 12 May 2022

update to visiting arrangements

Published: 11 May 2022

From Thursday 12 May 2022, inpatients in our hospitals will be able to have two visitors at their bedside. Visitors will not have to book a slot to visit, and visiting hours will be 2pm – 4pm and 6.30pm – 7.30pm.

People attending outpatient services can be accompanied by one person if they would like support.

Please remember, you can help us to help you and your loved one by:

  • wearing your face mask at all times when inside our buildings (unless you have a medical exemption)
  • washing your hands and/or using the hand sanitiser when you arrive and when you leave
  • providing updates for your family and friends after your visit

Please do not visit our hospitals if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or any other infection (such as diarrhoea and vomiting).

We will continue to regularly review our visiting arrangements in line with NHS and Government guidance and local public health advice. We are truly grateful for the kindness, patience and understanding you have shown our staff during the past two years while we have had visiting restrictions in place.
