Face masks and social distancing: Due to the rising prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, we strongly encourage healthcare staff and visitors to wear a face covering in all of our settings, particularly in clinical areas and those with high footfall. Please exercise a common-sense approach and personal responsibility to help us reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our patients, workforce and services. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is important to continue to maintain social distancing where possible. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this time. We continue to regularly review our advice based on prevalence in our communities and our hospitals.

Please note that these policies are subject to change in response to the pandemic and local issues. Please be mindful that this policy applies only to the neonatal unit at Singleton Hospital and does not apply to maternity ward or other neonatal units in the region.
All other visiting guidelines however remain unchanged.
Please do not visit the unit if you have the slightest symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 infection or have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Track and Trace or relevant medical authorities.
Working together we can keep everyone safe!
