Diarrhoea and vomiting? Please stay at home

Norovirus is spreading through the community so please help us to protect our vulnerable patients by staying away from our hospitals if you have the following symptoms:

  • suddenly feeling sick
  • projectile vomiting
  • watery diarrhoea

See NHS Choices for more information on norovirus.

The best thing to do is to stay at home until you’re better – there’s no need to visit your GP. If you’ve had norovirus, please do not visit the hospital until you’ve been free of symptoms for 48 hours.
