Staying safe and protecting our patients and staff in the heat
The Met Office has issued extreme heat weather warnings (Red and Amber) for our region on Monday and Tuesday next week (18 and 19 July), developing from Sunday. This means that an exceptionally hot spell is expected.
On these days we will be restricting visiting to the cooler part of the day, after 6pm. Restricting visiting to the evenings will help us by reducing the number of people on our wards during the hottest part of the day.
Visiting restrictions do not apply for patients where it is appropriate and necessary to assist with their communication and/or to meet their health, care, emotional, religious, or spiritual needs. Visiting restrictions also do not apply to pediatrics.
Thank you for your understanding, support and cooperation as we work to keep our patients and safe during the anticipated extreme heat.
