Guidance for visitors - 9 June 2020

To keep our patients, visitors and staff safe – and to limit the spread of COVID-19 - we have had to restrict the number of people allowed on to our hospital sites.

We know that it’s hugely important for patients to see their loved ones while they are in hospital, so have done all we can to support people to keep in contact while keeping them as safe as possible.

The information here sets out what visiting is allowed in each area.

We are also a county-wide plastics, head and neck and upper gastrointestinal (GI) surgical centre to a population of 3.4 million and home to the world-renowned supra-regional burns service at the St Andrew's Centre, serving a population of 9.8 million.
