Visiting hours during the Coronavirus outbreak

Information for Families and Visitors

We have been given a directive that we must take steps to minimise the impact of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) particularly for our patients who may be more vulnerable to infection.

For the safety of our patients and staff, from 24 March visitors will not be permitted to enter Broomfield Hospital.

The only exceptions will be:

  • Where a patient is receiving end-of-life care, except on Critical Care where we must protect our most vulnerable patients
  •  A partner accompanying a woman in labour
  • Children’s wards and neonatal units, one visitor per child.


We ask for the public’s help in respecting these rules.
