General information

Visiting

Following the announcement from Scottish Government earlier this week, changes to rules around visiting will come in to effect on Monday 26 April 2021. 

Coronavirus (Covid-19) -visiting restrictions

From Monday 26 April, 2021 patients in hospital will be able to receive Family Support visits. Visitors are limited to one person per patient and visiting restrictions will be determined by the hospital ward in which the patient is located.

Family Support visitors:

  • Family Support could be a friend, and not always a relative.
  • Carer or neighbour.

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.

Visiting to or from a level 3 area. Family Support Visitors living in Level 3 areas are still permitted to visit those in hospital where this is necessary, however all visitors are reminded they must adhere to the strict infection prevention and control procedures in place at the Hospital.

No one should attend the hospital if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 or are self-isolating following contact with someone with COVID-19 and instead should remain at home and follow advice on NHS Inform. https://www.nhsinform.scot/self-help-guides/self-help-guide-access-to-testing-for-coronavirus

Lateral Flow Testing is now freely available for everyone, and may make you feel more comfortable when visiting hospital. For more information please visit: https://test-for-coronavirus.service.gov.uk/order-lateral-flow-kits/condition Alternatively, there are static test sites, walk in, drive through and Mobile Testing Units (MUTs) set up throughout the country. To locate your nearest testing site, please visit https://maps.test-and-trace.nhs.uk/

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

Please note, COVID is still with us and can be transmitted easily. There are many vulnerable patents in our hospital wards, including patients with illnesses and types of treatment that require the need to proceed with extreme caution. This means that some patients will not be able to receive visitors at this time. If you are told you cannot visit, you will be provided with an explanation. All regulations will be kept under review, and where possible situations will be reassessed as circumstances change.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
