Hospital Visiting Resumes

Some welcome news. NHS Lanarkshire have now reintroduced visiting across all their inpatient wards. Units and patients can now have one visit a day with one visitor.

There will remain in place essential visiting in some ward areas or settings where the environment makes visiting difficult due to Covid-19 restrictions, social distancing or there may be an active outbreak. In these areas staff will use their professional judgement to consider when visiting can be allowed.

Visiting will still be by appointment only and visitors need to contact the ward to arrange a time to visit.  They will also need to have a negative lateral flow test and staff will be asking people to confirm they have undertaken a test before access to wards.

While visitors can now have close contact with their loved one, they are reminded to adhere to physical distancing in communal areas of the hospital, wear face coverings at all times and frequently wash their hands when entering and leaving clinical areas.
