Updated on Wednesday 29 December 2021

Visiting restrictions are being reintroduced from Wednesday 29 December in line with National guidance. 

Visiting will not be permitted unless under exceptional circumstances in COVID-positive areas.

These visiting arrangements, which are in line with national and regional NHS guidance, will be under constant review, with visiting in individual areas and the wider hospital potentially being restricted further as required.

The following areas are not included: Emergency Department (A&E), Acute Medical Unit (AMU), Respiratory Support Unit (RSU), Ward 43 and Women’s and Children’s services. To discuss arrangements in these areas, please speak to these wards directly on a case-by-case basis. Information about maternity visiting arrangements is on our website here.
