Suspension of visiting with effect from Thursday 10th June 2021
Wirral University Teaching Hospital has taken the difficult decision to suspend the former arrangements for visiting as from Thursday 10th June 2021. We have seen an increasing prevalence of COVID-19 in our Community. This decision has not been taken lightly and we thank you for your support and cooperation in keeping our patients, staff and community as safe as possible.
Visiting will still be able to take place for people who are at the end of life, or if you have had a telephone call from the hospital to attend the ward, for a patient with dementia, a learning disability and any patient where lack of visiting will be detrimental to their health and wellbeing. For more information please click here.
For an arranged visit you will need a visiting pass which can be collected from the Patient Experience Hub after agreement by the ward. Please bring with you a time and dated photograph of your most recent COVID-19 home test.
Thank you once again for your cooperation.
Further visiting provisions can be made in other parts of our site including Women and Children’s. For a full list of the exceptional circumstance arrangements, click here.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms such as a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a change or loss of taste or smell do not attend the hospital. Book your PCR test and self-isolate. All visitors will be required to wear a fluid repellent (surgical) face mask upon entry to the hospital, which will be made available upon arrival.
The Family Support Team can also help with arranging contact between patients and their loved ones, to find out more, please click here.
