Visiting restrictions will gradually ease at Wirral University Teaching Hospital Trust – Arrowe Park Hospital on a trial basis from Monday 26th April 2021.
To maintain patient safety and reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19, there will be a gradual return of visiting on four of our wards; 11, 14, 22, 27.
We must ensure that patients are able to receive visits in a safe and supportive environment; recognising the value of visiting to the wellbeing and experience for patients and visitors.
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.
We will be regularly reviewing the easing of restrictions in line with the National and North West guidance in order to manage any potential risks to patients, staff and the community. Subject to continued improvement of the COVID-19 situation in our community, and feedback from patients, staff and visitors, we hope re-open other wards in our hospitals.
The health, safety and wellbeing of our patients, staff and communities remain our priority, therefore the following conditions will be in place for anyone visiting a patient on the above wards:
- Patients can nominate one close relation or contact to attend the hospital who will remain the same throughout their stay.
- Each visitor must complete a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) and bring photo evidence of the latest test timed and dated. You can order your tests here https://bit.ly/3gpmzwP
- A visit will need to be booked 24hrs in advance by contacting the ward you wish to attend (unless under exceptional circumstances).
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: 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.
