From today (26 May 2021), partners can stay longer with women in our maternity units.
They will be offered one of two slots – 8am to 2pm or 2pm to 8pm each day. Currently, this is for birth partners only.
Slots can be booked by ringing the ward and it is crucial that partners:
· wear a face mask
· have undertaken twice weekly lateral flow tests and can provide the latest result
· do not attend if they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms
Lateral flow test kits can be collected from any pharmacy or by ordering online from www.gov.uk
