Update to patient visiting at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals

Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have partially relaxed visiting arrangements for adult inpatient areas.

Patients will be allowed one visitor per day for one hour between either 2pm – 3pm or 6pm – 7pm (7 days per week).

Arrangements to visit a patient need to be made directly with the relevant ward.

Please note that some surgical wards will not yet be accepting visitors under these arrangements.

All visitors are requested to follow social-distancing and hand hygiene practices and must wear a face covering unless exempt.

All visitors must provide evidence of a negative rapid lateral flow test. Information on how to obtain Covid-19 Lateral Flow tests at: https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests

If you test positive, or are displaying Covid-19 symptoms, please do not attend our hospitals.
