Visiting Times

Here at the Jessop we want you and your relatives to have a positive experience. We recognise that birth is a unique social event and that family and friends will be keen to visit.

All women, partners and visitors have to do a lateral flow test prior to attending and be negative.

We also ask that all women and visitors must wear a mask, socially distance, wash hands on entry and exit to Jessop Wing.

Visiting times are as follows:

Level 3 postnatal and antenatal wards

A birthing partner (and one other person or sibling/s where requested) can visit on the antenatal and postnatal wards between 8am and 8pm. There is no time limit to the visit.

Visiting on Labour Ward

Two birthing partners are now allowed to be present during labour and birth.

Please check with the midwife if you wish to visit someone on the high dependency unit on labour ward.

Scans and antenatal appointments

A partner or a nominated support person can attend all scan appointments and antenatal appointments. Partners will be asked to wait outside antenatal clinic and Labour Ward Assessment Unit and will be called in at the appointment time to limit the number of people in our waiting rooms.

Neonatal Unit

Two parents can visit the Neonatal Unit with negative COVID-19 PCR testing weekly.
 

You can find the ward telephone numbers here.
