Open visiting continues to be in place to support those parents or carers caring for a child or young person, carers who wish to continue their caring responsibilities and families of any patients who are ‘end of life’.

Dr Anne Scott, executive director of nursing, allied health professionals and quality at LPT, said: “At our Trust we recognise the value that visiting makes to the health, wellbeing and care of our patients and service-users.

"Our extended visiting reflects the commitment of all of our staff to delivering high-quality compassionate care for all.”
