Restricted Visiting Notice

Date: 12/02/2018

We have seen an increasing number of patients being admitted over the past few days with viral symptoms caused by Influenza and the Norovirus bug.

To protect our patients, we are restricting visiting to our wards to limit the potential for cross infection.

If you have a relative or friend in hospital please ring the ward to check on visiting arrangements beforehand (http://www.kgh.nhs.uk/for-visitors/visiting-times/ ). Please do not visit the hospital if you have flu like/Respiratory symptoms, or if you have had diarrhoea and/or vomiting in the last 48 hours.

You can normally look after yourself or your child at home. Try to avoid going to your GP, as norovirus can spread to others very easily. Call your GP or NHS 111 if you're concerned or need any advice.
