Following the easing of restrictions announced by the Premier, we have made updates to our hospital visitor restrictions effective from 13 November.
The changes increase the number of visitors per patient where physical distancing allows, allow people aged 16 and under to visit and remove the time limit for partners visiting maternity wards.
- Detailed visitation guidelines can be found here. Please familiarise yourself with these guidelines.
- Updated posters can be found here. These posters have been sent to DCOs and General Managers to replace previous signage.
- Information for teams can be found here.
Visitors may find visitation restrictions challenging – please explain to them the importance of physical distancing and the need to keep our patients safe. Discuss any exceptional circumstances with your team leader and the treating team to make the best decision for our patients.
If you have any questions or require further information please speak to your team leader.
If visitors attend your area who are in breach of these conditions, please contact security.
