Paediatric and Neonatal services visiting (Covid-19)

Please note our paediatric and neonatal visiting restrictions – updated 15 October 2020.

Children’s services:

In terms of children’s wards (including Observation Unit), both parents are allowed to visit, although this will be monitored and may be subject to change within bay area’s dependent on activity. The Nursing team will inform you if additional short term restrictions are required. Currently siblings are restricted and unable to visit, we acknowledge that this may give some parents difficulties if they do not have alternative child care. In these circumstances, then parents will need to visit separately at different times.

Neonatal services:

The primary and secondary carer for the neonate are able to visit as long as they take it in turns, it is not possible for parents to be in the nursery at the same time. The visitors will need to confirm they have read the visitor information and are safe to visit.

Please note, visitors must not be symptomatic of Covid-19, or part of a household which has been told to isolate. You must also wear a mask for the duration of your visit without exception.
