Some wards, such as Critical Care, may have further flexibility on these times.

Visitors will need to provide proof of a negative lateral flow test before they can enter the ward. This means visitors will have to test themselves prior to attending the hospital and demonstrating the negative test before entering the ward area.

If you would prefer to use FaceTime rather than visiting the hospital, this will remain in place.
