In order to minimise the risk of the spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19, we are implementing visitor restrictions from 7pm Saturday 7th March until further notice. The public are asked not to attend the Hospital other than end of life situations and other exceptional circumstances as agreed with the ward manager in advance of visiting. To arrange a visit, families should telephone the hospital and request to speak to the relevant ward manager who will decide if a visit can be facilitated without compromising the welfare of the patients on the ward. Children will not be permitted to visit the Hospital while restrictions are in place. We have implemented these restrictions to protect our patients, staff and the wider public. We regret any inconvenience these restrictions may cause.
