WCH Latest News – COVID-19 Information

Women's and Children's Health Network


The WCH is currently restricting visitor numbers and kindly ask that you limit visitors to one, and that siblings and other children do not attend at this time. This is to protect our patients and staff.

We also remind the community that visitors should not be entering the WCH if they are unwell.

We know this restriction can be challenging and we understand each family's situation is different.

For exceptional circumstances we encourage families to speak to their child's nursing team for further advice.

We thank you for your understanding.
