We have temporarily changed our visiting arrangements to help respond to coronavirus and protect our staff, visitors and patients. We know that it’s important for our patients to see family and friends and if face to face visiting is not able to take place, we will work with patients to facilitate video calls where possible.
With immediate effect all wards across UHDB (including Derby Private Health), with the exception of Maternity, Paediatrics and Emergency Department, will restrict visiting unless the patient is receiving end of life care. All vulnerable patients, specifically those with learning disabilities, dementia, mental health or complex needs, as well as those who are unable to make decisions for themselves, may be accompanied by their carer/s.
From Monday 15 June 2020 all patients and visitors should wear a face covering on entrance to Derby Private Health and throughout the duration of your visit. The face coverings can be a scarf, homemade face mask or one that has been purchased. The measures are an important part, alongside social distancing, of reducing the spread of Covid-19 in our hospitals and to keep our patients and communities safe. Full guidance is available here
