Suspended visiting on all general wards
24th March 2020

Please note that from 12 noon on Tuesday 17th March we are suspending visiting on all our general wards.

Exceptions to this are maternity, children’s areas and neonatal, where visiting is restricted to parents and birth partners only.

Where patients have dementia or learning disabilities, or are end of life, visiting will be agreed on an individual basis so please discuss this with the nurse in charge.

We are sure you will understand this is to protect our patients and staff and thank you for your support and co-operation.

 

During our restriction on visiting, ourĀ  volunteers have offered to take any parcels to your loved ones. Drop them off, clearly labelled, at main reception at Russells Hall Hospital and they will deliver them to the ward for you.

 

**Prior notice of changes to our maternity and antenatal/postnatal Clinics**
Please note that as of today, Tuesday 24th March, only one birthing partner will be allowed to be present during the labour, as previously advised.
Birthing partners are able to visit the ward between 3pm-4pm.
We also ask that any ladies attending antenatal clinics or scan appointments, to attend alone.
We are sure you will understand this is to protect our patients and staff and thank you for your support and co-operation.
