Kingston Private Health and the NHS is well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases, and measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of the public and patients whilst NHS staff ensure services continue to be available. Please see our infographic below to show our main measures in place.
In line with national guidance and those of the wider Trust, we are currently unable to allow visitors to the Unit. We kindly ask family members to instead keep in touch via telephone or video calls, where possible.
Exceptions to visitor restrictions will be made only in the following circumstances:
- If a patient is receiving end-of-life care
- Children under 16 on our inpatient wards – one parent or carer is allowed at a time. Unfortunately, siblings are unable to visit at the moment
- Women in labour in our maternity unit – one birthing partner allowed
Visitors will be asked about possible Covid-19 symptoms, required to sanitise their hands and wear a mask and other PPE to meet infection control requirements. We ask for your help in respecting this guidance. Thank you.
