Visit your loved one using ZOOM

Virtual Visitor has been set up to respond to the coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic has led to restricted visiting in all Trust inpatient areas.

The Virtual Visitor scheme will ensure that people who are inpatients on our wards can continue to have contact with their loved ones during this time.

We want to make sure that the people in our care do not become socially isolated.

The Trust are now using ZOOM to ensure that people can reach their loved ones.  Staff will support inpatients to use a tablet.

If you would like to visit a loved one in this way, contact the ward manager and download ZOOM to your device

People have told us:

‘Virtual visiting could also be a more practical and also a safer way of providing support to people in hospital’

‘We are all discovering new ways of working in this new situation we are experiencing’

 ‘It is important that we are in touch with our loved one as we know it can have a detrimental impact on their health and wellbeing’

I was able to talk to my family member that I had not seen them in weeks.  It made my day and it was so nice to see them’
