Visiting inpatient wards

We have taken the difficult decision to suspend all visiting across our inpatient areas throughout the Trust with effect from 9am, Friday 18 September 2020.  This is to protect our inpatients, their families, and our staff from what appears to be a sustained rise in infections across the communities we serve.  We will closely examine each situation and in exceptional circumstances, we may be able to facilitate visiting, but only if this is safe to do so.
