Ward visiting may be restricted further as part of our infection control management, for example, when patients on a ward have norovirus (diarrhoea & vomiting) bug or a flu virus. These measures are necessary to prevent a spread of the illness to other patients and visitors.


If you wish to send flowers to a patient, please be advised that they are not permitted to be kept on certain wards. Please check with the patient's ward before arranging delivery of flowers or bringing flowers into the hospital.
