Visiting Times

To limit the spread of Covid-19, we can no longer allow visitors to any of our adult inpatient wards. We will ask family members to instead keep in touch via telephone or video calls where possible. Please note this applies to both University Hospital Lewisham and Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

For patients who are critically ill or nearing the end of their life, one visitor will be permitted with the agreement of the ward manager.

Women in labour in our maternity unit will still be able to bring a birthing partner with them. Children under 16 on our inpatient wards will still be allowed visitors, but these will be limited to one adult visitor at a time.

This has been an incredibly difficult decision to make, but as a Trust we feel these measures are necessary to keep our patients and our staff safe. We are looking at additional ways of ensuring that all our patients can stay in touch with their relatives and carers.

We are advising members of the public not to visit at all if they have symptoms of Covid-19. Please see the NHS website for the latest information and advice. Thank you for your understanding at this time.


Normal arrangements: 3pm-8pm, two visitors per bed.
