• Visiting is permitted for inpatients. Each patient can have one visitor, visiting them for approximately an hour, per visit. Patients can also have one visitor with them when attending an outpatient appointment.
  • Pre-booking is still essential. Before visiting an inpatient setting, you will need to contact the clinical area to discuss arrangements and book an appropriate time.
  • Where able, you should undertake a lateral flow test before visiting an inpatient or accompanying an outpatient.
  • Visitors will be required to wear a surgical face mask while visiting the hospital, must maintain social distancing where possible and will be asked a series of health questions before the visit to reduce potential spread of infection to other patients, visitors or hospital staff.
  • Anyone who has had a positive lateral flow or PCR test in the past 10 days or is showing symptoms of Coronavirus must not visit an inpatient or accompany someone to their appointment.
  • Restrictions may vary depending on the circumstances of individual wards and the level of infection being experienced.


If you can’t attend a face-to-face or virtual appointment, even if it is the last minute, please let us know so we can re-arrange it and offer the slot to help someone else.

You can cancel and re-arrange appointments by calling or emailing: 01926 600 036 /
