Information from Maternity FAQs - Updated 15 April 2020:
Visiting is still temporarily suspended across the Trust, this includes partners of women attending for scans, unless there are exceptional circumstances. In which case this should be considered on an individual basis and women should ring ahead to discuss.
There are some exceptions where visitors are permitted, including: birthing partners in maternity units, patients who are receiving end-of-life care, and parents or legal guardians in the children’s unit.
