Advice for hospital and inpatient unit visitors

Visitors to inpatient wards in our hospitals and other sites

  • Please do not visit hospital or any NHS inpatient site if you, or anyone in your household, has a continuous cough or high temperature above 37.8 degrees – or other infectious illnesses such as diarrhoea or vomiting
  • Only essential visits should be made to a hospital or inpatient unit, such as if you are the main carer of a patient there. Everyone else should avoid visiting – especially children and those who are frail or have underlying health conditions
  • Visitors should wash their hands regularly and use alcohol rub when entering and leaving ward areas
  • Visitors must follow staff advice at all times.

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.
