Changes to Hospital Visiting in Scotland as Restrictions Ease

The relaxation of restrictions means that hospital inpatients in Scotland can now have one visitor per day.

Temporary hospital visiting restrictions have been lifted and adult inpatients across NHSGGC hospitals can now benefit from the support of one visitor per day in most circumstances.

The change includes all adult inpatient wards, including mental health. The visitor can change each day.

Additionally, all maternity wards will now be able to support two visitors – one essential, and one additional person. Visits must be arranged in advance with the ward to enable us all to follow physical distancing rules. Read more:
