Hospital visiting restrictions lifted following sickness outbreak

Visiting restrictions have been lifted at Bromyard Community Hospital today following an outbreak of diarrhoea. Staff at the hospital have released a statement to any potential visitors:

"It still remains very important that any visitors with diarrhoea and/or vomiting do not visit the hospital until they have been free of symptoms for 48 hours. Visitors are requested to practice good hand hygiene and use the alcohol gels available in all wards/departments. Wye Valley NHS Trust wishes to thank all patients and visitors for their understanding during this period and to emphasise that these restrictions were put in place to protect our patients, as part of a zero tolerance approach to healthcare associated infections."
