Update posted: 15 February 2019


Norovirus (winter sickness bug) is currently circulating.

Please help us reduce the risk of infections. If you have experienced norovirus symptoms in the last 48 hours, or have been in contact with someone who has, please do NOT visit.

Visitor restrictions are still in place on adult wards at Stoke Mandeville Hospital as norovirus is still circulating in the community. This is a preventative measure to limit the risk of norovirus infection.

We would kindly ask for your continued cooperation in observing the following restrictions:

- No children visitors
- Only one adult visitor per patient per day

These restrictions are being reviewed on a regular basis and will remain in place over the weekend. Ward staff are instructed to inform patients and their friends and families of these restrictions for the comfort and safety of all our patients and staff.

Please note: These restrictions do not apply to our other hospital sites nor to our children’s wards at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

If you have any concerns at all please speak to the nurse in charge of the ward.



Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust’s mission is to provide safe and compassionate care, every time with a focus on providing right care, right place, right time, first time.

As a pioneering Trust we bring together acute and community services – delivering them when and where our patients will most benefit and we work hard to deliver this.  We have one of the best stroke services in the region, some of the lowest infection rates in the country and excellent surgical outcomes, but we are always striving to do better.

Working together with our community we are continually looking for innovative ways to improve our performance and provide our patients with the service that they deserve and our staff can be proud of.

We are well on the way to achieving this.

Find out more about our performance.
