  • Virtual Visiting Service Pilot

    *NEW* Virtual Visiting Service Pilot

    We are currently piloting a new virtual approach to hospital visiting at Daisy Hill and Craigavon Area Hospital. This Virtual Visiting service uses tablet devices to connect families at home to their loved ones in hospital and we hope it will bring some comfort at this difficult time.

    Visiting, due to the current pandemic has been restricted (see above). Whilst patients and families understand the importance of visiting restrictions in preventing the spread of infection, we really appreciate the challenges this presents to friends and families not being able to see their loved ones during their hospital stay.

    Relatives wishing to avail of this pilot service should call our Virtual Visiting co-ordinator between 9am and 5pm on 077 7651 6419

    Currently, this service is not available in Covid-19 red zone areas. However, as stated above, all Southern Trust sites have access to free Wi-Fi and our staff can help where possible to set this up on the patient’s device if they need some extra help with this.
    Please be patient, our team will do the best they can to meet demand for this service.
    Following the pilot it is anticipated that we will be providing Virtual Visiting as a Trust wide service.

  • Visiting Rules
