Staff Extranet >
We are now allowing limited visiting to our inpatient hospital wards and mental health units, in line with current COVID-19 restrictions.
Visiting is only permitted once a patient has been admitted for 72 hours and we know they do not have the virus.
Unfortunately, no visitors are allowed for patients who have COVID-19, except for compassionate reasons – for example, to see people receiving end-of-life care.
We understand these restrictions are very difficult, but are necessary to slow the spread of the virus and keep people safe. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are offering a virtual inpatient visiting service at a number of our sites, where electronic tablets are given to inpatients to keep in contact with relatives and friends via video.
Outpatient appointments are continuing to take place where appropriate and where it is safe to do so. We would recommend you come alone unless it is with a child or someone that needs additional support. For further information please review how our services are running or contact the service directly. Prior to attending a site, please refer to your appointment letter or read the following guidance for specific details on visiting so you are COVID-19 safe.
Portland was a naval hospital which was handed over to the NHS in the early 50s. At the time it had both orthopaedics and children’s services with its own kitchen and staff accommodation.
Now, Portland Hospital now still meets the needs of both Portland and the wider community in Weymouth with a Minor Injuries Unit and X-ray available, as well as outpatient clinics and an outpatient physiotherapy service.
