Update to visiting arrangements

Our Trust is closing its wards to visitors to help stop the spread of Coronavirus.

Wards at Edward Street Hospital, Hallam Street Hospital, The Macarthur Centre, Gerry Simon Clinic, Penrose House and The Larches in Sandwell and Penn Hospital in Wolverhampton will be stopping visitor access from Midnight on Wednesday 18 March 2020 until further notice.

Alongside inpatient wards, the Trust is reviewing its outpatient and community activity offering more flexible and alternative methods such as telephone consultations or home visits based on a case by case basis.

Maintaining services and ensuring patient safety is the Trust’s top priority and they are working closely with local health and social care organisations to minimise disruption for our local communities.

The latest Trust guidance can be found on our website
