Hospital visiting - new restrictions

2 January 2022

Due to the increasing prevalence of COVID-19 in the community, we have taken the decision to restrict visiting in our hospitals from Monday 3 January.

As such, pre-booked visiting will no longer be available for adult in-patients at the Royal Free Hospital and Barnet Hospital.

Compassionate visiting, which is for patients who are near the end of their life and patients who have specialist needs including dementia, will continue.

There are no changes to the current visiting guidelines for patients who are children and for women receiving maternity care.

Thank you for your understanding on this matter.
