The Royal Marsden is, from Thursday 26 March, suspending all visiting to the hospital in order to limit the spread of the virus and protect vulnerable patients and our staff.
- Oak Centre for Children and Young People – one visitor per patient will be allowed, preferably the same visitor. Unfortunately, no siblings are able to visit from now on.
- Patients receiving end-of-life care – up to three immediate family members at any one time, to be arranged in conjunction with the clinical team. This applies to all patients regardless of their COVID-19 status. This visit will usually be a single visit on compassionate grounds, however we may not be able to facilitate this for all patients.
- Patients requiring assistance from a chaperone, for example if the patient has physical disabilities or mental health needs, including dementia – one visitor is able to bring the patient into the hospital, but will then need to leave as soon as the patient is under the care of a health care worker. This applies to all patients regardless of their COVID-19 status.
