In these limited circumstances visiting will be possible: Patients who are in the last days of life; patients who are receiving a new significant life changing or life limiting diagnosis; a birthing partner accompanying a woman in labour & in the immediate post-natal period.

A parent or appropriate adult visiting a child; patients suffering mental health issues, such as dementia, a learning disability or autism, where not having visitors will cause the patient distress; critically ill patients in critical care unit, high dependency areas or A&E.

We will have virtual visiting facilities in place. We apologise for having to take this step as we are fully aware of the impact suspending visiting has on our patients and those close to them. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The announcement comes after the number of new Covid cases in Northampton topped 2,000 ieri.

London boroughs continue to have the highest infection rates, with areas such as Lambeth and Lewisham having recorded closes to 8,000 cases in the seven days to December 25.

Un ulteriore 19,544 cases of the Omicron variant were reported in the UK yesterday.

Overall Covid cases reached a new record high in the UK yesterday, dopo 189,213 cases were reported.

As cases continue to rise, NHS leaders have been reassured that despite also witnessing rise in hospital admissions across the UK, the threshold for new rules has not been crossed.

Ieri, the number of Covid-19 patients in hospitals in England jumped to 11,492 – the highest number since February.

Chris Hopson, the head of NHS Providers, told the BBC: “We know that the government has set a high threshold on introducing extra new restrictions.

So on that basis, trust leaders can see why the government’s arguing that in the absence of a surge of seriously ill patients coming into hospital, that threshold hasn’t yet been crossed.

But we still don’t know if the surge will come and indeed we’re exactly talking about the preparations that we’re making or that surge right now.

So in terms of restrictions, I think we’re in exactly the same place we’ve been in for the last fortnight, which is the government needs to be ready to introduce tighter restrictions at real speed should they be needed.
