Maternity and birthing partners

After discussion with the our Theatre teams, Infection Prevention and  Control, LMS and other trusts in the area we have made a change, to our Maternity visiting restriction.

Birth partners can be present in theatre for the birth who are asymptomatic, but will need to leave once their partner goes to the ward.

Any designated birth partner who is self-isolating (including for other household members or a child with symptoms) or who are symptomatic must not attend theatre or labour ward, please consider an alternative person to attend.

Thank you for keeping us safe and you can read our further visiting restrictions here.
