Visiting a patient

What you need to know when attending The Walton Centre

Visitors and individuals accompanying patients to appointments are not routinely required to wear a face mask unless this is a personal preference or there is an outbreak in the area being visited.

Visitors are asked not to attend if:

  • If you are feeling unwell
  • Have respiratory symptoms
  • Had diarrhoea or vomiting within the past 48 hours, you must not attend.

Whilst in our hospital, ensure you continue to follow infection control guidance as advised by staff. clean your hands using soap and water before entering and leaving the ward areas (alcohol can also be used on leaving the ward).

Please note, visiting may be restricted or suspended with if there are concerns about the spread of infection in our hospital.

The Walton Centre is working hard to ensure that we provide the best patient care possible, and we ask that you please respect our staff. However difficult things may seem for you, we are all here to help.

Please be kind and respect our staff who greet you and work hard to look after you - we are here to keep you safe and we kindly request your support to help us do this.

Thank you for your understanding.
