Visiting child patients on our wards


Ipswich and Colchester hospitals have restricted visiting in a bid to stop the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Parents and appropriate adults are still welcome to be with their child in hospital. Two parents/guardians can visit their child in hospital, but not at the same time.

Unfortunately, siblings and other family members cannot visit.

Your ward team will be able to give you more information about how to stay safe.

Remember Hands. Face. Space.



When in hospital, wash your hands regularly, wear a face mask and follow social distancing guidance.




If you have any questions, please call the children’s department caring for your child.
