All Visiting Suspended at BMI Hospitals

All visiting is suspended until further notice in order to keep you, our patients and staff safe.

We are aligned with the NHS approach and only in exceptional circumstances will one visitor be allowed:

  • The patient you wish to visit is receiving end-of-life care
  • You are a parent or appropriate adult visiting your child

Thank you for your understanding at this challenging time.
