Visitors to our hospitals and services are welcome. We will however need your help to stop the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our staff and patients safe.

When visiting any of our hospitals or services visitors are asked to do the following:

  • Stay at home if you feel unwell. Get tested and isolate.
  • Wear a mask while you are in hospital
  • Wash your hands regularly and have hand sanitiser with you
  • Keep your distance and leave 1.5 metres between yourself and others
  • There may be occasions when staff need the number of visitors at the bedside to be limited.
  • Please know your loved one's wellbeing is our priority and as always consideration will be given on compassionate grounds and on a case-by-case basis including areas such as paediatrics, maternity, critical and palliative care.
