Visiting someone in hospital

We encourage family and friends to visit inpatients being cared for at RJAH, recognising that this can have a positive impact on rehabilitation.


Visitors must book their visit in advance with the Ward Clerk on the ward where their loved one is staying. Individual wards will be able to use their own discretion as to time slots they offer to visitors. 


Visitors will only be required to wear a face mask when visiting their loved ones who have confirmed or suspected covid-19 or other respiratory illnesses, such as flu, as well as those who are deemed as clinically extremely vulnerable. 


Visitors are also asked to follow guidance on good hand hygiene whilst on the hospital site. 


Outpatient appointments


People were requested to attend outpatient appointments alone following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, due to limitations of space as a result of social distancing requirements.


We are pleased to say that these restrictions are no longer in place, and patients are welcome to attend their appointment with a family member or friend.


We ask both patients and visitors to observe any infection prevention and control measures in place at the time of your visit, including the wearing of surgical masks. You will be advised of these upon your entry to the department.
