Visiting the William Harvey Hospital

Visiting a patient on a ward: one visitor allowed for a maximum of one hour per day. The hour must be within visiting times of 2 - 4pm and 6 - 8pm. 

For the safety of patients and staff, visitors are asked to take part in the national lateral flow testing programme and have had a negative test before visiting.  Find out how to take a lateral flow test

Please do not visit if you have had a positive test or if you have symptoms or your household is isolating.  Visitors are being advised to contact the ward or department in advance to discuss appropriate arrangements. 

Outpatient Appointments

East Kent Hospitals are providing many appointments by telephone or video link.  Instead of your face to face appointment, a clinician will telephone you on the date of your appointment via your given telephone number between 9 am and 5 pm.

Please do not physically attend the hospital for an outpatient appointment unless you are called and asked to do so.
