Vomiting and Diarrhoea

We have had some cases of vomiting and diarrhoea at St Peter’s and are restricting visits to Swan, Maple, Holly and Cherry wards to prevent it from spreading.

If you were planning to visit one of these wards, please phone the ward before you travel to the hospital.

Please can we remind you that if you have had a bout of vomiting and/or diarrhoea to not visit the hospital until you have been free of symptoms for 48 hours.

Visitors are advised to use the alcohol sanitiser prior to and entering the ward area and to wash their hands with soap and water before leaving the room/bay. Visitors should not eat or drink whilst on the ward.
