For adult inpatients on wards A1, A2, A4, A5, A7, B5, B11, Coronary Care Unit, Stroke Unit, Sitwell, Keppel and Fitzwilliam the restrictions are:

Our visiting booking line is very busy, so please bear with us - our team of volunteers are answering calls as quickly as they can. The booking line can only arrange visiting, they are unable to answer any general queries or provide information about a patient's wellbeing. Please do not contact the wards or Switchboard to arrange visiting as they are unable to make bookings, however wards will be able to provide updates on a patient's wellbeing.
For all other adult inpatient areas, including assessment and short stay, the restrictions are:
One named visitor for patients with dementia, learning disabilities or autism
One visitor at a time (after discussion with the Nurse in Charge) for patients receiving end of life care.
