Visiting restrictions and face mask use in our hospitals
Visiting is permitted across Furness General Hospital, Westmorland General Hospital and the Royal Lancaster Infirmary between 2 – 8pm every day. Please be aware that there is separate visiting guidance in our maternity services.
There is no longer a requirement to wear a face mask in our hospitals unless there is a request on entering a specific ward or unit; this could be because of the risk of infection to other patients or to yourself.
Visiting restrictions and mask guidance are subject to change at short notice.
Restrictions and visiting times may be different on some wards in outbreak. Please contact the ward directly to check and for advice.
Industrial action is taking place throughout this week. Please attend as planned if you’ve not been told your appointment is cancelled. Everyone who needs medical care should continue to come forward as normal, especially in emergency cases.
