Canterbury DHB has made changes to its visitor policy effective from tomorrow, Tuesday 16 February 2021. These changes can be viewed on our website, however, some general rules apply to all of our facilities:
For details of specific changes please check our COVID-19 information page
At Burwood Hospital visiting hours are from 11am – 7pm with only one person visiting at a time.
At Christchurch Women’s Hospital women can have one named visitor for the duration of their postnatal stay.
For Child Health Services, parents/caregivers can visit at any time, and both parents/caregivers can visit at the same time.
Outpatients – only one person should accompany each patient coming in for an outpatient appointment.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we all work to protect our vulnerable patients and staff.
Anyone with planned surgery or an outpatient appointment should still turn up as planned – if there’s any change to your appointment, we’ll contact you directly.
