Visiting guidance

Do not:

  • Bring flowers, food or drink on to the ward

  • Sit on a patient’s bed  

Do:

  • Clean your hands before entering a ward, after contact with patients and when you leave the ward OR use the alcohol gel provided

  • Speak to a nurse, before you enter, if you see a sign on the door or bay that you want to visit – you may need to put gloves and an apron on before entering

  • Remember only two visitors at a time are allowed at a patient’s bedside    

At times we might need to:

  • Put visiting restrictions in place for the protection and safety of our patients. For example if there was an outbreak of infection       

  •  Ask visitors to leave for a short time, for example during ward rounds or if our patients require personal care       

Your ward staff will keep you fully informed. If any relative or carers would like to be involved in a patients care, please talk to our nursing staff. We are delighted if you or your family want to help care for a patient, especially if they normally help out at home.
