COVID-19 is still here and so are our visiting restrictions. Please wear aa mask and socially distance

Infection prevention control guidelines to remain in place

Story posted/last updated: 21 July 2021

As the trust that has been hardest hit by COVID-19, it’s important that we continue to do all that we can to protect both our patients and our staff. We are a large acute trust and continue to see an increasing numbers of COVID-19 positive patients from across our region needing care. At this difficult time, the highest priority for the NHS remains the safety of staff, patients and visitors.

Therefore, in-line with national NHS guidance, there will be no changes to our current visiting restrictions from 19 July onwards. We are currently undertaking visiting pilots in some low-risk areas (more on this below). We will continue to review our position and will share any updates here and on our social media channels.

In line with national NHS guidance, anyone visiting our hospitals from 19 July onwards will still be required to wear a face mask or face covering (unless they are exempt) and will need to socially distance in all areas of our hospitals and healthcare settings. This will be monitored by our security teams at all sites and is necessary in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Please remember that our hospitals and other settings are visited by some of the most vulnerable people in Birmingham and Solihull and as a healthcare provider we have a duty to protect them and ensure they can be treated as safely as possible. We thank you in advance for your cooperation, patience and understanding at this time.

The guidelines are set to remain in place for all staff and visitors and across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dentists, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected.
