Current visiting restrictions to inpatient areas at Hinchingbrooke Hospital will be lifted from Friday, August 6.  

The North West Anglia Foundation Trust (NWAFT) had restricted visiting due to Coronavirus cases increasing and the number of Covid-positive patients in their hospitals growing. 

However, following regular review of the situation, the decision to gradually lift restrictions has been taken to help support our patients while protecting them in a controlled way. 

Dr Kanchan Rege, chief medical officer at (NWAFT), which runs Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford and Rutland hospitals, said: “We are pleased to gradually lift our visiting restrictions once again.

"We do not make these decisions lightly, and need to focus upon maintaining a safe environment for our staff, visitors and patients who are vulnerable to Covid-19.

We encourage visitors to participate in the twice weekly lateral flow testing that is available here:
