Visiting Restrictions at our Hospitals

23.03.2020

In line with national guidance, please be advised that patient visiting has now been suspended at both of our sites – University Hospital, Coventry and The Hospital of St Cross, Rugby.

We ask that you adhere to these guidelines with immediate effect to continue to ensure the safety of yourselves and your loved ones.

Friends and family are encouraged to keep in touch with patients, who can make free phone calls to landlines from their hospital beds (calls to mobile phones will be charged).

The only exceptions to the suspension are visits to Paediatrics, for those with birthing partners or on compassionate grounds. Visits should be agreed with ward managers or the nurse in charge.

We appreciate your ongoing support during this time.

These measures are necessary to help us to further protect our patients, staff and visitors from Coronavirus (Covid-19).

*Patients are able to make free calls to landlines from the phones by their beds, calls to mobiles will be charged.
