An outbreak of Norovirus has caused visiting restrictions at Leighton Hospital following an outbreak.
Temporary restrictions have been applied on wards four and fourteen by Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and only essential visits are being permitted in the evening.
Julie Smith, director of nursing and quality, said: “While some of our wards are currently affected by a viral illness thought to be Norovirus, we are asking the public to not visit these areas at the moment in order to allow for the effective management of the infection.”
“We also request that relatives don’t visit any other areas of the hospital if they themselves have felt unwell with diarrhoea, nausea or vomiting – feeling or being sick – over the past 48 hours, as our patients may be more vulnerable to picking up bugs.”
