NHS Lanarkshire has now temporarily suspended all visiting times at all hospitals and inpatient wards in Lanarkshire to limit the spread of coronavirus.
The unprecedented, new restrictions will come into place from tomorrow, Wednesday 18th March 2020 in a bid to protect vulnerable patients.
The latest change is to further reduce the number of people attending the hospitals each day, free up parking and put less pressure on the hospitals themselves.
Visiting will, however, be available in very limited and exceptional circumstances – for example patients receiving end-of-life care or those accompanying partners during childbirth. This will need to be arranged prior to attending or permitted by the on duty nurses.
