Due to the current risks associated with COVID-19, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT) has temporarily suspended visiting for patients in its hospitals.
Until further notice, visiting is only permitted for:
• Patients who are receiving end-of-life care
• Birthing partners in the Maternity Units
• Parents or legal guardians in the Children’s Wards.
Visitors for the above must be agreed with the nurse in charge of the ward before attending the hospital. Please agree one main point of contact per patient and this should be the only person that contacts the ward by telephone to arrange visiting.
The public should not visit any health and care settings if they: are unwell (especially if they have a high temperature or a new, persistent cough); are vulnerable as a result of their medication; have a chronic illness; or are over 70 years of age.
