Eastern services visiting details

Visitors and patients are not routinely required to wear face coverings unless it is their personal preference.

To help keep our most vulnerable patients safe and to help protect our visitors, there are some exceptions to this, which are as follows:

  • In settings (inpatient or outpatient) where patients are at high risk of infection due to immunosuppression, e.g. oncology/haematology and renal services, visitors will be asked to wear a facemask
  • Visitors will be asked to wear a surgical facemask if visiting a high-risk area or a patient with suspected/known COVID-19
  • Individuals accompanying patients to ED and admission areas will continue to be encouraged to wear face coverings

Please help us to help you and your loved one by not attending if you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 or flu or any other infection (such as diarrhoea and vomiting).
