Visiting someone in hospital

See our Covid-19 web page for further information on visiting and keeping in touch during the Covid-19 pandemic

Although some visiting restrictions remain in place at our hospitals, we support the principles of humane, respectful and compassionate care associated with John’s Campaign.

Visit our Carers page to find out more about how we support carers to remain with loved ones who would benefit from their support in hospital.

Visitors' charter

Please download a copy of our Covid-19 Visitors Charter. It sets out guidelines that both staff and visitors need to adhere to, updated to reflect how visiting our hospitals may differ now we have to consider managing and preventing the spread of Covid-19. 

Visitor boards

Each ward and department now has an ‘Information for visitors’ board designed to include useful information for visitors to our hospitals. The displays include details of the ward, information about the discharge process, information for carers and support for our patients. The same information can be found on various pages of this website. Alongside this information we also highlight some improvements the Trust has made and a monthly overview of the ward's performance in relation to quality and safety of care.
