Virtual Visiting

In the first instance, wherever possible, our preference is for family, friends and carers to stay in touch by using the telephone or social media, rather than face-to-face visiting.  This helps reduce the number of people coming into our hospitals, which is safer for everyone.

We provide a 'Virtual Visiting' service, where patients who do not have a phone or tablet of their own can use a hospital iPad to video call the people who matter to them.  If you would like to video call someone in hospital, provided this is the patients wish, and the patient does not have their own phone or tablet, please ring 01904 724229, email or speak to the ward directly, and we can arrange a video call for you.

We understand not all of our patients will be able to access our virtual visiting service.  If you would like to send a message or a letter to a loved one who is currently an inpatient in one of our hospitals please email it to

At the beginning of your letter or message, please include the patient's full name, the patient's date of birth or address, if known; and the hospital site and ward.

Coronavirus - useful information

The latest health information about Coronavirus can be found at  Information about our local services can be found on this website here.

From Monday 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.  A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.  It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.  For more information click here.
