Visiting Patients

Patient visiting restrictions during COVID-19 outbreak

Due to the rapidly changing situation around COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and in line with the Prime Minister’s instructions to ‘stay at home, protect the NHS, and save lives’, it has become necessary to temporarily suspend visiting at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

We have not undertaken this lightly and we appreciate that it may cause distress to both patients and their loved ones but we are making every effort to reduce the spread of the virus and minimising the amount of people in the hospital is essential.

Please see Visiting and outpatients for full details on the current restrictions.
