Visitors are able to visit general wards between 11am and 7pm and will not need to use the booking system.
Please click here for a full list of visiting times for all areas.
We are asking people to only have two visitors at any one time and that people do not visit if they have any respiratory symptoms or symptoms of diarrhoea or vomiting. This is to protect all of the poorly people in our hospital and we ask for your support with this.
As of Tuesday 28th February, the guidance on mask wearing for visitors has changed:
- Patients and visitors attending appointments at The Dudley Group NHS Trust are no longer required to wear a face mask unless they have experiencing respiratory symptoms such as coughing and sneezing.
- If attending the Emergency Department or Urgent Care Centre with symptoms of a respiratory tract infection, such as coughing and sneezing, we request that you wear a mask if you are able to.
- Patients who are clinically extremely vulnerable, such as immunosuppressed, will be encouraged to continue to wear a mask (if you are able) for both inpatient and outpatient visits to protect themselves.
- Visitors attending clinically extremely vulnerable or respiratory patients should wear a mask to protect themselves and others.
- If it is your personal preference to wear a mask, they will remain available for you – please do not hesitate to ask.
Please note, there may be occasions due to patient safety or clinical need, where we may need to suspend visiting in the future.
The restrictions will still apply to areas where we are caring for patients with COVID.
