VISITING ACROSS ALL INPATIENT WARDS AND DEPARTMENTS

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions and the need for us to encourage the public to abide by these rules, the Trust has made the decision to suspend inpatient visiting with the only exceptions being:

  • If your child is staying on MacGregor overnight or longer, one parent/carer will be allowed into the hospital and these should be the same parent/carer each day. N.B Unfortunately, siblings will not be able to visit the hospital.
  • Maternity services - One birthing partners is allowed for labour & birth, induction of labour or Caesarean Section, following birth all new families will be supported to have 3 hours protected family time together
  • On compassionate grounds for end of life care
  • To support patients with a learning disability or dementia who may be more distressed if visiting is restricted.

COVID-19 VACCINATION PROGRAMME

The first phase of the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme has started. When it is the right time people will receive an invitation to come forward. For most people this will be a letter, either from their GP or the national NHS. This letter will include all the information you will need to book appointments, including your NHS number.

Please do not contact the NHS to get an appointment until you get this letter. Please visit the following page for information from Public Health England about how the vaccination programme is being rolled out.

Information on the vaccine is available on the NHS.UK website.
