Note to visitors - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Maternity visiting - (updated May 2022)

We welcome 1 person accompanying women and pregnant persons requiring support through antenatal clinics, scan attendances, triage and for the start of induction of labour. Once in a room on the labour ward, 2 support partners are welcome to join you again for the duration of your time there.

On the wards after birth, partners can visit 08:00 to 20:00 and a maximum of 3 people (partner/family/friends) per bed space between 16:00 to 19:00. No children are to attend at this current time. All support partners and visitors are required to wear face coverings when in the hospital, unless exempt.

We no longer expect evidence of a negative test before allowing access to maternity or neonatal units, however we kindly request that any support person who has symptoms of COVID-19 or has COVID-19, does not attend maternity or neonatal settings and encourage women to consider an alternative support person who could accompany her if this is the case.


Paediatrics areas

For outpatients, one parent or guardian will be allowed to attend, with the ability to allow two (from a family bubble) if appropriate in discussion with the consultant.

In the Children’s Assessment Unit, one parent or guardian will be permitted, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

When a child is admitted, one parent or guardian can be in attendance. A second parent/ carer will be offered a flexible hour slot to visit.
