Date of release: 13 March 2020
The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust is working hard to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect staff, patients and visitors from becoming seriously ill.
With this in mind, we have made the decision to suspend all visiting to our wards at New Cross, Cannock Chase and West Park hospitals.
We can appreciate this may be frustrating for the family and friends of patients, but we can assure you that it is the safest precaution to take at this time. As per usual practice, the ward staff will contact you if the person becomes seriously ill.
The only exceptions to this are Children’s Services, Maternity and Neonates. More information surrounding these areas can be found on our public website - www.royalwolverhampton.nhs.uk
Any changes going forward will be shared on our public website, so please stay engaged with our news feed where regular updates can be found.
