  • Hygiene and Infection Prevention

    It is important for parents and family to visit their babies but infection poses a great risk to a premature or sick baby. 

    If you are a parent and feel unwell you must enquire from the nurse looking after your baby if it is safe for you to visit.

    No other visitors can visit if they are unwell.

    If parents (or other visitors) have come in contact with anyone who has an infectious disease, for example chickenpox, measles, mumps it is very important that you talk to your baby's doctor about the risks this poses to yourself and your baby.

    The decision to allow visiting will depend upon individual circumstances
