Visiting Times [Updated: 04/01/2022]
Visiting restrictions during the COVID-19 Pandemic:
Due to the rising levels of COVID-19 infection in the community and the increased risk this poses to our patients we have had to make the difficult decision to close general visiting at all wards and departments across our Trust from midnight on Christmas Day. The exception being visiting at Rowley Regis’s McCarthy and Westwood wards, which is halted with immediate effect.
Visiting arrangements, however, will remain in place as they have done throughout the pandemic for our most vulnerable patients, those patients who are at the end of life, those with limited mental capacity, and a parent/guardian supporting their children.
Visiting on inpatient wards in our maternity department is limited to partners or birthing partners only for one hour a day. Please contact the ward to arrange your visiting time.
Please bring evidence of a negative lateral flow test result taken on the same day – either a photograph of the test result or evidence following registering on the Government website. Do not bring the test itself.
Partners may accompany women to appointments or scans on proof of a negative lateral flow test result as above.
Birthing partners are allowed to accompany the mum-to-be whilst in labour.
All visitors will be required to wear a face mask unless exempt.
Please note, we will not tolerate any verbal or physical abuse towards our staff.
Thank you for your patience
