Answer To Question 4:
The Trust has a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and action card for visiting in-patients. This is reviewed in response to changes in national guidance and in response to local indicators. Any changes to visiting are agreed through the Trust incident response governance process. Any return to visiting as it was pre COVID 19 would be considered depending on this.
