Restricting visitors to our hospital

To minimise exposure during the COVID-19 pandemic, visitors are not allowed into the hospital except in exceptional circumstances. This means if someone drives you to the hospital for your appointment they will not be able to accompany you into the hospital.

After your appointment they can collect you but will not be able to come inside of the hospital. All of our hospitals have parking facilities and we would encourage you to re-join them in the car park. If you need additional help a member of the BMI team will support you.
