Important message - our current visiting policy

In order to protect our vulnerable patients, families and staff visiting is currently limited.

Do not visit if you are unwell, especially if you have a high temperature or a new, persistent cough, or if you are vulnerable as a result of medication you take, have a chronic illness or are over 70. For the latest national guidance on self-isolation visit the NHS England website.


Please see our dedicated pages for the latest visiting information for each of our sites.

Forward Thinking Birmingham visiting


Wherever possible, visitors should be the same individual each time, unless that person needs to self-isolate or becomes unwell. No other family or friends should be on the Trust’s premises whilst an individual makes their visit.

We’d encourage families and friends to use other means to stay in touch, including digital communications, to offer support to loved ones.

These visiting arrangements do not apply for patients receiving end-of-life care. In such circumstances, please contact the ward or department offering care to discuss appropriate arrangements.
