Guidance for inpatients

Updated Wednesday 30 December 2020

Given the restrictions in place across England, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend visits for hospital patients to protect our patients, visitors and staff.

In exceptional circumstances we might be able to allow a visit, but only if this is safe to do so.

We encourage you to stay in touch with your loved ones through a virtual appointment. Please speak to the ward if you need information about how to do this.

As a carer you should be given the contact details of the team that is providing a service to your family member or friend, and the name of the person responsible for their care.

If you don't know who to talk to, please check our service directory or contact our Patient Experience Team via email dhcft.patientexperience@nhs.net, Tel. 01332 623751 or freephone 0800 027 2128.

The following brochure is available to all service users and carers on our wards, and gives information on what changes they can expect to take place on their ward during this time.
