St Leonards Community Hospital

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.

  • Each patient may have one named visitor, per day, for one hour. Visits should be arranged in advance by contacting the ward.
  • Please arrive at the site wearing a face covering, and clean your hands on entering the building.
  • You must use hand sanitiser and put on a surgical mask, gloves and apron before entering the ward area. These will be provided for you on arrival.
  • Please comply with the social distancing guidance, staying two metres away from others wherever possible during your visit. Follow the signs and guidance posters in our buildings.

 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.

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.

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.

St Leonards is a community hospital serving the towns of Ferndown, West Moors, Verwood and the surrounding areas. The hospital offers a range of services including an out-patient department with a variety of clinics.
