East Surrey Hospital is changing its visiting restrictions from today.
Patients and their loved ones can nominate one person to visit. Only this individual will be able to visit the patient for the duration of their stay. This person will be able to visit for one hour per day, between 10am and 7pm, with the time agreed in advance with the ward.
There are some exceptions for maternity patients, children, and those receiving end of life care. Visitors must wear a face covering at all times when in the hospital.
