Visitor Information

South Western Sydney Local Health District continues to focus on providing a safe health service for patients, their families and carers, and staff, while providing kind and compassionate care.

Visitors to NSW Health hospitals, community health centres, and outreach clinics are welcome but must wear a mask correctly before entering and while inside a healthcare facility. Children aged 12 and under are not required to wear masks.

All visitors will be screened on entry and must follow the advice of healthcare staff at all times.

If the person you are wishing to visit is currently COVID-19 positive, your request will need to be clinically assessed and some additional restrictions may apply.

Each patient is allowed two visitors at the bedside during visiting hours from 10am to 8pm. In maternity and birthing and for outpatient care, two support people are allowed.

Visitors will generally be permitted if they:

  • Wear a surgical mask correctly at all times while in the facility
  • Have not tested positive to COVID-19 within the last 10 days
  • Have not tested positive to another acute respiratory infection in the last seven (7) days
  • Do not have symptoms of COVID-19 or other acute respiratory infection
  • Have not arrived from overseas in the past 7 days

An exemption to any of the above criteria may be permitted on compassionate grounds and on a case-by-case basis including maternity and neonatal services.
