Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

Information and guidance for public, NHSGGC staff, and community-based services.  Hospital visiting restrictions now in place.

Information for Visitors

New visitor restrictions now in place - visiting is being gradually reintroduced

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:

  • Parents of children who are inpatients or attending an outpatient appointment. Parents must remain with their child at all times
  • To support someone with a mental health issue such as dementia, a learning disability or autism where not being present would cause the patient to be distressed
  • To support someone receiving end of life care.
  • Children must not visit.

All visiting arrangements MUST be made through the nurse in charge of the ward. 

Find out more about the current visiting restrictions and guidelines.
