Special instructions

Hethel Ward is a respiratory ward and our patients have infections. We therefore strongly recommend that babies and children under 5 years old do not visit the ward – this is for your childrens’ safety.

We do ask that visitors do not bring fresh flowers on to the ward as many respiratory patients are allergic to them.

Visitors are reminded to wash their hands, to please not sit on the beds, and to keep visiting down to two people per patient at any one time.
