Hospital visiting

To maintain the safety of patients, visitors and staff, visiting still needs to be carefully managed. In most cases, visiting can be arranged by contacting the ward directly and arranging a suitable time to visit, however, in some hospitals/wards further restrictions are in place. Current information and guidance can be found on the Patients, Hospital Appointments and Visiting page.
