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.
Westhaven Hospital opened its doors in 2008, amalgamating Weymouth’s previous Evergreen and John Talbot Wards to create the current Radipole Ward.
Radipole Ward has continued to serve the community of both Weymouth and Portland and has been central to providing more joined-up care through the the development of the innovative Weymouth & Portland Hub.
The Hub has enabled patients, with support, to remain in their own homes. If they do need in-patient services they can access one of the community beds on Radipole without needing an acute hospital admission.
The WesthavenHospital has been recognised both locally and nationally for its commitment to integrating services for the benefit of its local population.
