Visitors to Bradford Hospitals must produce negative lateral flow tests for entry

The lateral flow device must be handed over before entry, a photograph is not acceptable.

A negative lateral flow test must be shown before visitors are allowed entry to the Bradford Royal Infirmary, St Luke’s Hospital and the community hospitals of Westwood Park and Westbourne Green.

The test must be handed over to staff on entry to the ward. A photograph will not be acceptable.

Negative lateral flow tests are now necessary for people visiting Bradford Hospitals.

If you don’t have a test, it will not be possible to go into any of the hospitals, wards or inpatient areas.

If it is an emergency situation, to facilitate an urgent visit, the hospitals will provide visitors with a test to use prior to going on the wards.

Only patients on Green wards who have been in hospital for more than seven days and those on end-of-life care are allowed visitors.

Women attending pre-natal scans or patients receiving their first and last doses of chemotherapy at Eccleshill are also allowed a plus one.

People attending outpatient appointments or attending A&E are currently not expected to produce a lateral flow test.

Face coverings are legally required before entering any hospital.

You can pick up lateral flow device (LFD) kits at most pharmacies or you can order them online for free. For local stockists, visit here or to order a pack to your home, visit here.
