Frances Perry House has updated its visitor guidelines, effective from Tuesday 10 November.
The main change is that there is now no limit on how long birth partners can stay on the postnatal ward.
For the moment, outpatients are still required to attend their WOGS appointments alone (except for in exceptional circumstances, in which case permits must be obtained).This is due to the fact that we are required to adhere to social distancing regulations in all areas, including our waiting room. We of course still welcome partners/support people participating in appointments via FaceTime.
WOGS remain committed to doing everything we can to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our patients, their families and our own staff.
We will update you all as soon as the visitor guidelines change. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
