CORONAVIRUS – ward closures

Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust is closing its wards to visitors to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Wards at Bushey Fields Hospital in Dudley and Dorothy Pattison and Bloxwich Hospital in Walsall will be stopping visitor access from midnight on Wednesday 18 March 2020 until further notice.

Alongside inpatient wards, the Trust is reviewing its outpatient and community activity offering more flexible and alternative methods such as telephone consultations or home visits based on a case by case basis.

Maintaining services and ensuring patient safety is the Trust’s top priority and the Trust will be working closely with local health and social care organisations to minimise disruption for local communities.
