Our community hospitals

You must not visit our hospitals if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or are self-isolating because you’ve been in contact with someone who has symptoms.
Visitors must use hand sanitiser and put on a surgical mask before entering a ward. These are provided on arrival.
Patients may have two visitors. This doesn't have to be arranged in advance unless it is for a patient who has COVID-19 where the ward will need to be contacted in advance to arrange a visit.
If the patient is recieving end of life care, more visitors are permitted but this also has to be discussed with the ward.

In some locations, we will continue to limit visiting numbers for the time being due to the size of a ward or other restricting factors. An appointment-based system may be in operation in some wards to help manage visitor flow.

Hospital matrons and ward leads do have the discretion to support more visitors to visit where requested. And where restrictions remain in place we offer virtual visiting, where friends and family can arrange to speak with patients via a video call.

The visiting times for all of our hospitals are 2-4pm and 6-8pm, seven days a week, including bank holidays. You do not need to contact the hospital in advance to attend but, if you'd like to, you can contact the hospital directly.
