In order to protect the safety of patients/staff we are requesting that the public do not visit the hospital at this time. With the exception of:

  • Parents visiting or staying with their Children.

We are appealing to members of the public to co-operate with these necessary restrictions.

If you have visited an area that has confirmed Coronavirus and are experiencing symptoms please do not visit the RVEEH, contact your GP by telephone.
