Restricted visiting at St Richard’s Hospital

Thursday April 18, 2019

Due to diarrhoea and vomiting in the local area we ask relatives and friends not to visit patients at St Richard’s unless it is absolutely necessary.

There is an increase in diarrhoea and vomiting / norovirus at the moment and unfortunately a number of our patients are affected.
Our priority is to keep patients safe and so we are asking people not to visit patients unless it is absolutely necessary.

Some wards have been closed to new admissions, with visiting to these wards very restricted. Please call the ward to confirm details.

Please note, no one should visit the hospital if they have experienced D&V symptoms within the past 48 hours.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

How can we make this page better?
