MFT Covid-19 Interim Visiting Policy – Monday 14th February 2022

Arrow In this section

We all know how important it is for you when you are in hospital to have visitors, so we are really pleased to be able to welcome visitors back to our hospitals. When you’re a patient, a visit from a friend or family member boosts your morale and helps you recover more quickly.

We had to really restrict visiting in recent months, because of the amount of COVID circulating in the community. But, with rates now dropping across Greater Manchester, we’re very pleased to be able to welcome more visitors back again and opening our visiting hours again where we can.

We want to keep everyone safe of course, and will always need to assess the risk to patient and visitors alike. We are asking visitors to help by paying attention to our hospital rules and there are times when we will take a few factors into account.  For example, as usual we are asking you not to attend unless you are 48 hours clear of symptoms after Norovirus or any diarrhoea or vomiting.

We will need to temporarily increase restrictions in areas with COVID-19 outbreaks or where patients have specific vulnerabilities to infection.  It goes without saying that to keep everyone safe, we are asking you not to come if you have symptoms or known recent COVID-19 exposure.

There’s no change to the requirement to comply with safety measures when you visit, and that includes wearing a surgical face mask, distancing, handwashing and wearing the appropriate PPE identified by the clinical staff responsible for the patient’s care.

By paying attention to these safety measure, you will help us to ensure that as many patients as possible can continue to see visitors.

You can read the full policy here. Thank you for following the visiting rules, which keep patients, staff and other visitors safe.
