Further restrictions at Bradford Hospitals amid rising Omicron cases

Patients in Hospitals in Bradford on non-Covid-19 wards will only be allowed one dedicated visitor, for one hour, twice a week, if in the hospital for seven days or more.

In line with rising Covid-19 cases and new national guidance, Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has taken the decision to further restrict visiting.

From today patients on green (non-Covid-19) wards will only be allowed one dedicated visitor, for one hour, twice a week, if the patient has been in hospital for seven days or more.

In the past seven days, 7699 people have tested positive for the coronavirus, an increase of 107%. Yesterday, Tuesday 4 January 1101 people tested positive.

Omicron cases in Bradford are increasing.

Red (Covid-19) wards will remain fully restricted other than in the case of exceptional circumstances.

All other areas, including maternity, remain as per previous guidance.

All visitors to wards are expected to bring a negative lateral flow test with them prior to being allowed into the hospital to visit patients.

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will continue to support end-of-life visits for family and carers.

Lateral flow tests can be ordered free from the Gov.uk website, here.
