Visiting at HPFT sites
Please note: our visiting guidance remains in place during the current national lockdown
We recognise the importance of visiting, and how valuable it is to our service users and recovery, so we want to keep supporting this where we can.
All visits to our inpatient and community sites are currently by prior arrangement only. This is so we can safely accommodate the number of people in our buildings at all times, maintain social distancing in all our communal areas and wards, and provide the safest possible care to our patients.
Before visiting, please contact the staff looking after your friend or relative to see if a visit is possible and to discuss appropriate arrangements. Please do not attend any of our sites without agreeing this in advance.
You will be asked if you have any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 (new, persistent cough and/or a temperature, a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste). If you do, then please do not visit. In addition, on the day of the visit you will again be screened for symptoms of COVID 19 before being allowed to enter. If you have someone in your household with COVID-19 symptoms then please do not visit.
All visitors to our inpatient or community sites, except children and babies under the age of three, will need to wear a face mask at all times. If you don’t have your own, masks can be provided when you arrive on site.
