Welcome to Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust

Visiting at CHFT

Last Updated: 4 October 2022

We ask all visitors coming into our hospitals and our health centres to wear a face mask in clinical and ward areas. Our priority remains as ever to continue to protect our patients, visitors and staff. If you are unable to wear a mask, alternate arrangements will be made.

Signage will indicate where you need to wear one and our staff may also ask you to put a mask on. You no longer need to wear a mask in non-clinical areas such as corridors and restaurants - though we will still provide them if you choose to do so.

Thank you for helping us all stay safe!

Here is a summary of our visiting guidance. Please read our full visiting guidance here

  • There will be two visiting sessions daily between 2-4 pm and 6-8 pm on the majority of our wards.
  • Two people may accompany an adult inpatient and two for a child in the ED department
  • There will be one two hour visiting session for two people visiting loved ones in ICU between midday and 6pm.
  • Virtual visiting continues to be an option.
  • Booking ahead is not required.
  • If in doubt please ask on the ward
  • All visitors will be asked to wear a mask for the duration of their visit
  • We're sorry but children under the age of 16 aren't allowed to visit at the moment
