All visitors (including children) are asked not to visit the hospital if they have had diarrhoea and/or vomiting within the previous 72 hours.

All visitors are requested to observe hand hygiene regulations on entering and leaving the wards.  Information on these regulations are posted throughout the hospital.

The restrictions will be reviewed on a daily basis.
