There is no change to visiting rules on their children's wards (two visitors only) or maternity (two birthing partners, one who accompanies the mum to the post-natal ward).

All maternity patients should enter the hospital via the labour ward reception (pink on the map next to number 1).

Testing:

If you have been tested for the virus either at Whittington Hospital or in your own home the hospital will contact you with your test result as quickly as possible. They realise that you may be anxious about your results but please help them to help you by not calling to check your results. A member of their team will contact you as soon as the results are available.  

Other services

Please do not contact Whittington Health if you have not already been informed of any changes to your care.

Although Whittington Health will take all measures necessary to delay the spread of  Coronavirus (COVID-19), they will also endeavour to continue as many of their services as possible.

Whittington Health say that it remains safe for patients to attend Whittington Health as normal and ask patients to attend all scheduled appointments. There is no reason to cancel an appointment.
