NHS GG&C Update
From Monday 19 July, 2021, all patients in our hospitals in NHSGGC (where possible) will be able to benefit from support of at least two people from the same household at the same time. If not from the same household and physical distancing cannot be maintained, visits can take place separately. This arrangement is aligned to Level One of the Visiting Guidance for Hospitals in Scotland and is a precautionary approach while COVID-19 infections remain high in our communities.
To maintain the safety of patients, family providing support and staff, visiting needs to continue to be carefully managed. At present only family and friends chosen by the patient or their guardian, carer or power of attorney can visit. If this is you, please contact the ward to arrange a visit in advance, so we can be sure our wards and hospital sites do not become overcrowded and allow everyone to follow the physical distancing rules. A list of telephone numbers can be found for all wards and departments on the NHSGGC website link here.
There may however be some circumstances where it is still not safe for a patient to have a visitor; if this is the case, we will tell you why and keep it under review where possible.
