Better Care

Inpatient Services

Having reviewed the current situation and the latest national guidance about hospital visiting, we are delighted to confirm that in the week beginning Monday 19 April 2021, we will be reintroducing visiting for inpatients.

We know how difficult it has been for people not to see their loved ones while they are in hospital, and in welcoming visitors once again, it is important we work together to keep people safe.

We encourage everyone, especially people who wish to visit, to take part in the government regular rapid coronavirus testing programme which is available for anyone who does not have symptoms.  This usually involves rubbing a long cotton bud (swab) over your tonsils (or where they would have been) and inside your nose and can give you a result in 30 minutes. 

To obtain a rapid lateral flow test you can go to a test site (click here to find your nearest rapid lateral flow test site) or you can test yourself at home.  You can collect up to two packs of seven tests from a local pharmacy or test site (click here to find a pharmacy where you can collect rapid tests or find a test site where you can collect rapid tests) or you can get a pack of seven tests sent to your home (click here to order rapid lateral flow home test kits on GOV.UK)

If you have coronavirus symptoms, you need a different test called a PCR test. Click here to get a PCR test if you have coronavirus symptoms on GOV.UK.

Please remember that we have to maintain strict measures to keep all visitors, patients and colleagues safe and we ask that you help in following these instructions if you wish to visit somebody in one of our inpatient facilities.

If you have any questions about these arrangements, please speak to the ward manager, matron or the family liaison officer for the relevant ward. We will continue to offer virtual visiting, by supporting telephone and video calls between patients and their loved ones, and also offer an email messaging service (
