Exemption visiting (Covid-19)

For those permitted to visit, please read this guidance before you come to our hospital sites. 

If you are granted visitation access due to one of our listed exemptions, please read the following, ensuring you are able to safely come to our hospitals:

  • You must not be symptomatic of Covid-19: Please do not visit our hospitals if you are symptomatic of Covid-19, you live in a household with someone who is, or you or your household have been told to isolate.
  • Feeling under the weather? If you have a cough, cold, diarrhoea, vomiting or a temperature, you could have an infection and may risk passing this on to our patients. Please do not visit the hospital if you are feeling under the weather and delay your visit.
  • Overseas trips: If you have just returned from an overseas trip, please do not come to our hospitals.
  • Face covering: All visitors to the Trust must wear an appropriate face covering – if you cannot, we will ask you to leave.

Entering the hospital:

  • To minimise any chance of cross-infection, if you are visiting our hospitals, please come directly from home.
  • Please ensure you are wearing a suitable face covering – failure to do so may mean you will be refused entry.
  • Wash your hands upon entry to our hospitals.
  • If coming to a ward, we will take your temperature. If it is higher than normal, unfortunately we will ask you to leave.
