Patients with no active COVID-19 can now have one designated visitor and an essential visitor.
A designated visitor is someone chosen by the patient. Where possible, they should be the main link with the hospital staff for communication. This might be their spouse, next of kin or a friend. The designated visitor can be changed by arrangement, for example, if they become unwell.
An essential visitor includes the following:
All visiting arrangements MUST be made through the nurse in charge of the ward.
