Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust
VISITOR RESTRICTIONS CURRENTLY IN PLACE – Seasonal Flu
We are currently experiencing an increased number of seasonal flu cases within the community and are dealing with a cluster of cases in our Walnut Ward. For the protection of both you and our patients, we have temporarily restricted visiting to one person per patient, throughout the hospital, and ask that you don’t bring children with you during your visit.
If you are visiting Walnut Ward during this time, you may be required to wear a mask, gloves and apron to protect you. Please contact the ward for advice prior to your visit on 01480 413145.
If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, such as fever, cough and joint pain, please speak to your GP for advice or telephone 111. For more information, please visit http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Flu/Pages/Introduction.aspx

It’s important to remember that you can only become infected with the Ebola virus if you have come into direct contact with the blood, body fluids or organs of an infected person. No cases of imported Ebola have ever been reported in the UK, but if you have recently returned from West Africa and have any of the symptoms of Ebola you should not come straight to A&E but should contact 111 or your GP immediately so you can be met and treated in an appropriate place.
Our Patient FeedbackIn October 2014, 94% of patients who responded to our Friends and Family Survey said they would recommend Hinchingbrooke to family or friends. Find out more here.
