Visiting

Coronavirus (Covid-19) - visiting restrictions

Restrictions on hospital visiting at NHS Golden Jubilee have been re-introduced by the Scottish Government following an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in the Glasgow City, West Dunbartonshire and East Renfrewshire local authority areas.

From Wednesday 2 September 2020, for the next two weeks, hospital inpatient visiting is restricted to essential visits only. The local measures are being taken to protect patients, visitors and staff in line with public health and scientific advice regarding the COVID-19 outbreak.

People living in these areas will also be unable to make non-essential hospital visits in other health board areas, but remain able to make essential visits to hospitals in other areas. These essential visits are:

  • for a person receiving end-of-life care;
  • to support someone with a mental health issue such as dementia, a learning disability or autism where not being present would cause the patient to be distressed;
  • a birth partner supporting a woman during hospital visits; and
  • to accompany a child in hospital.

Visitors should also consider whether a visit is essential even in these circumstances.

Anyone who is unwell and/or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 - a new, persistent cough, change or loss of taste/smell and fever or high temperature - should not visit any patients in a hospital.

Non-essential visitors should consider alternative ways of maintaining contact with relatives and loved ones in hospital, such as by phone or video chat, which we can help with.

Any essential visitors to our site must ensure they carry out the correct hand hygiene measures, physical distance and wear a face covering at all times.  

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.

 Children

No visitors, including children, are allowed at this time.

 Flowers

Please do not bring flowers into the hospital.

 Food
