Visiting Remains Suspended at Raigmore Hospital

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Wednesday January 10 2018

Members of the public are being thanked for their cooperation and understanding as visiting remains suspended at Raigmore Hospital.

By minimising the footfall into the hospital, it is believed that this has helped reduce the spread of flu.

Visiting restrictions remain in place unless under special circumstances and with the agreement of the nurse in charge.

Raigmore would also ask that children under the age of 16 should refrain from visiting anyone in hospital at this current time.

Flu is circulating in the community and NHS Highland would ask that if you have any respiratory symptoms you do not visit any hospitals.

While Raigmore is the only hospital in Highland that has suspended visiting, NHS Highland would ask that if you are visiting any of their other sites it is limited to two visitors per patient and strict attention is paid to hand hygiene. 

NHS Highland also advise that unless you have been told otherwise, please attend for your clinic appointments as normal.

NHS Highland is grateful for the support staff across all their hospitals are receiving from the public at the moment.

The temporary suspension of visiting will be reviewed at the end of this week.
