Visiting patients in hospitals – 13 July

From 13 July visiting to non-Covid areas of hospitals is to resume safely and on a phased basis

Patients in non-Covid areas will be able to have a visit from one named visitor, with visits agreed in advance through the ward they are visiting.

This is in addition to essential visits that have already been held during the pandemic – end of life, to accompany children, to support women during childbirth and for people with mental health issues, dementia, autism or learning disabilities where not having a visitor will cause stress or distress.

For patients in Covid-19 wards, only essential visits will continue to be allowed.
