Blyth Community Hospital

We’re piloting reintroducing visiting safely to some of our inpatient wards at our community and general hospitals including at Blyth Community Hospital.

The relatives of patients in these pilot areas are being contacted to make arrangements to visit if they wish. If anyone has any questions about the pilot, or are unsure whether the ward on which their loved one is staying is part of it, they should contact the ward directly.

Outside of these pilots, visiting remains suspended except in the following circumstances which remain unchanged:

  • For patients who are receiving end-of-life care (will be restricted to only one relative or nominated next of kin.  If this person is frail or infirm they can be supported by another)
  • For birthing partners in maternity units
  • For parents or legal guardians in the children’s unit
  • At the discretion of the nurse in charge for long-stay patients and those with dementia
