As of Tuesday 13 July 2021, visiting at all sites run by University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT) has been suspended for at least two weeks.
The decision has been taken in agreement with other local hospitals as cases of COVID-19 are rising in hospitals and in the community.
Visiting to the Trust's hospital sites continues to be permitted in the following circumstances:
The patient is receiving end-of-life care
Pregnant women are allowed to have 1 partner with them throughout induction/labour and whilst attending their 20 week scan
1 parent/carer is allowed to stay with their child or baby throughout their time in hospital
The visitor is supporting someone with dementia, a learning disability, autism, or something where not being present would cause the patient to be distressed. For patients with dementia, John’s campaign is available for one family member/carer to visit and support the patient as needed
To find out more about visiting times on each ward, please ring the ward your loved one is staying in or the main hospital switchboard (01539 732288) to be transferred to the appropriate ward/department.
