Visiting suspended at Jersey General Hospital

02 December 2020

The Jersey General Hospital will close to all visitors from 5pm today (Wednesday 2 December).

This is to protect patients and staff following an increase in community COVID-19 cases.

Patients are asked to attend outpatient clinic appointments and planned procedures, but to come alone – with the exception of children or vulnerable adults who can be accompanied by one other person wearing appropriate PPE.

Under national guidelines for visitors, the Maternity Unit, Paediatrics and the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) will remain open for visitors, with strict PPE measures in place. Special arrangements will be made for the families of any patient on an end-of-life care pathway.

Minister for Health and Social Services, Deputy Richard Renouf, said: “I understand that suspending visiting will impact on families and patients, and we know that not being able to visit family members whilst they are in hospital is distressing for many people. However, it is vital that we keep our patients, staff and the public safe.

“Thank you for your continued understanding as we try to contain and suppress the spread of COVID-19 in our community and health care settings.”
