Visiting someone in hospital
All three hospitals in the Trust have open visiting, meaning that people can visit patients when they wish. It provides the opportunity for the carers of patients to remain with their loved one, where appropriate, and be actively involved in their care.
But please remember, do not come to visit someone in hospital if you have diarrhoea, vomiting, a cough, cold or flu like symptoms.
You can see a copy of our visitors charter here and it is also available on all wards. It sets out guidelines that both staff and visitors need to adhere to, such as the number of visitors per bed and the steps to take to help infection control.
Each ward now has a Visitor's Information board designed to include useful information for visitors. The displays include details of the ward, information about the discharge process, information for carers and support for our patients. 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.
