Withybush Hospital visiting restrictions remain

People are being asked to not to visit Withybush Hospital until Monday due to an ongoing outbreak of diarrhoea and vomiting.

A hospital spokesperson said family members can receive updates about their relatives from nursing staff over the telephone.

We are hoping the worse of the outbreak is over but we are asking visitors not to come to the hospital to protect patients and reduce the spread of infection. People may not be aware they are carrying the bug as they have no symptoms but it can still be passed onto vulnerable patients so we are urging people to respect the visiting restrictions while they are in place.
