Guidance for visitors - November 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.

Important information - October 2020: The café at Braintree Community Hospital has been closed to public access due to the increased health Tier 2 restrictions now in place across Essex. The café will still remain open to patients and staff.

Mid Essex Hospitals is part of the new Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust.

Working alongside Basildon and Southend hospitals, we provide care for a population of over 1.2 million people in central and south Essex.

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.
