In line with the wider approach taken across the NHS, we have regretfully decided, temporarily, to stop all visits to our inpatient wards from midnight on Monday 23 March.
We understand the upset this may cause but will ensure that patients have access to telephones and iPads so that they can keep in touch with loved ones in other ways.
We hope our service users will understand our absolute priority is their and our staffs safety, and that this decision is in line with national guidance around social distancing to ensure vulnerable groups are protected.
We are informing service users and contacting relatives and next-of-kins to let them know. Thank you very much for your understanding.
