19 October 2020

No visiting from Monday 19th October unless exceptional circumstances

It is with regret that due to increasing cases of COVID-19 in the community we have taken the difficult decision to once again limit the number of people coming into our hospitals to try and limit transmission of the virus to patients and our staff.

From Monday 19th October visiting is not allowed unless in exceptional circumstances such as end of life or birth partners. For all other exceptional circumstances please discuss this with the nurse in charge of the ward over the phone ahead of your visit.

We do appreciate how hard this is to not see your loved ones in person but their safety has to be the priority.

Anyone who wishes to communicate with their relative via an alternative method, such as mobile phone/face time/Skype is welcome to do so and we have free internet access across the Trust for patients to use. We have also provided phones and Ipads on all wards for patients to use if they don’t have their own device. We have ensured all our wards have iPads and other devices to help you keep in touch.

Other restrictions in place:

 • Please come alone to outpatient appointments, antenatal appointments/scans or procedures unless you need assistance
• Only birth partners are allowed to accompany women in labour and there is no visiting by anyone else.

The new rules for inpatient visiting and outpatients apply to the Northern General Hospital, Hallamshire Hospital, Weston Park Hospital, Jessop Wing and Charles Clifford Dental Hospital as well as community health buildings, including the Stroke Pathway Assessment and Rehabilitation Centre (SPARC), run by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals.

Thank you for helping to protect our patients and staff.
