Earlier this week on Monday 30 March, the Northern Care Alliance Group announced that all visiting hours have been suspended until further notice at North Manchester General, Fairfield, Royal Oldham, Rochdale Infirmary and Salford Royal hospitals – in a bid to reduce COVID-19 infection rates.
The only exceptional circumstances where one visitor – an immediate family member or carer – will be permitted to visit are listed below.
- The patient you wish to visit is receiving end-of-life care.
- You are the birthing partner accompanying a woman in labour.
- You are a parent or appropriate adult visiting your child.
Relatives or carers are advised to contact the ward or department in advance to discuss appropriate arrangements.
