Visiting at both Queen’s and King George hospitals is suspended until further notice, to help us protect our patients and staff.
The only exceptional circumstances where one visitor – an immediate family member or carer – will be permitted, are listed below:
- The patient you wish to visit is receiving end-of-life care
- You are the birthing partner accompanying a woman in labour
- You are a parent or appropriate adult visiting your child
- You are supporting someone with a mental health issue such as dementia, a learning disability or autism.
Our ward managers will ensure all patients have a named relative and allocate a time for people to call to keep in touch on a daily basis. Please remember not to come to our hospital if you have a cough, cold, flu-like symptoms or any infectious illness like diarrhoea and vomiting.
We appreciate how important it is to be able to stay in touch with your relatives, so we’ve launched our ‘Thinking of you’ service, so that you can send them a letter and some photos.
We will continue to monitor the situation.
