Visiting in Hospitals & Hospices

Closed 15 Jul 2022

Opened 24 May 2022


As we continue to deal with the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic in NI and make progress with vaccination it is recognised that there is a need to continually review visiting arrangements for our hospitals & hospices, balancing both risk and the need for families to support patients at a time of illness and admission to hospital and hospices.
