Stop the spread of flu and norovirus

To help protect our patients and staff from flu virus and norovirus, do not come into the hospital if you are feeling unwell and experiencing flu-like symptoms, diarrhoea or vomiting.

How you can help us if you are not well:

Do not visit the hospital until you have been free of symptoms for 48 hours

If you have an appointment or it is essential to visit a friend or relative, speak to the ward sister or manager prior to your visit.

Wash and dry your hands, making use of the alcohol sanitisers located across the hospital.

If someone in your household has symptoms of norovirus or flu, please refrain from visiting.

Catch it, bin it, kill it – if you have flu-like symptoms, use tissues when you sneeze and to blow your nose. Discard the issues into waste bins immediately after use and wash your hands thoroughly.

Stay well this winter.
