Currently we have an outbreak of Norovirus at the hospital. Regrettably some of our wards and services are being disrupted and we apologise for the inconvenience.

The virus is highly contagious but our staff are following well-rehearsed procedures to stop it spreading any further as quickly as possible. Please help us and DO NOT come into hospital if you had any vomiting or diarrhoea in the past 48 hours.

Safe Staffing

From June 2014 it became a National requirement for all hospitals to publish information about nurse staffing levels on wards, including the percentage of shifts meeting their agreed staffing levels.

This initiative is part of the NHS response to the Francis report - an investigation into the failings at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust which called for greater openness and transparency in the health service.
