good life, good death, good grief

Who can come with me to the hospital?

There are currently strict visiting restrictions in place at hospitals to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and protect those who are vulnerable inside and outside of the hospital. This means that, if you're over 18, you probably won't be able to bring anyone with you into the hospital.

If you can, take a phone, tablet or laptop (and charger!) with you as it could help you to stay in touch.   Make sure you have the contact numbers of those you wish to communicate with.

Depending on the circumstances, exceptions to the visiting restrictions might be made to allow support to someone who would be extremely distressed if left alone, for example because of dementia, a learning disability or autism. Check out your local NHS Board website for more information about the rules where you are.
