Visiting Times, Advice and Information for Patients & Visitors

Please do not visit our hospitals if you have been in contact with someone with measles in the last three weeks, or you are unwell with the following symptoms.

  • high temperature
  • runny or blocked nose
  • sneezing
  • a cough
  • red, sore watery eyes

Measles usually starts with cold-like symptoms, followed by a rash a few days later. Some people may also get small spots in their mouth. If you have had measles, you must not visit until day 4 after the onset of the rash (day of onset of the rash being day 0) and are feeling well.

If you need to attend hospital and have been in contact with measles in the last three weeks, please inform us as soon as possible: if attending hospital urgently, please inform the receptionist or clinical team as soon as you arrive; if you have a planned appointment, please inform your clinical team as soon as possible prior to attending.
