The DHB's visitor policy has again been updated as we navigate our way through COVID-19 alert level three

Changes have been made to the DHB's visitor policy for Burwood Hospital

Following Monday’s relocation of residents from Burwood Hospital back to their home at Rosewood Rest Home & Hospital, changes have been made to the visitor restrictions in place at Burwood under Alert Level 3.

The following visitor restrictions now apply:

All visitors need to be checked in via the Main Entrance to Burwood Hospital – 300 Burwood Road

  • One nominated person from the patient’s bubble may visit once per day during visiting hours 10am to 6pm and must be the only visitor for the duration of the patient’s stay in hospital. 
  • Outpatient appointments, a support person will only be permitted under specific criteria – e.g. Carer/support person is required to be with them at all times.

Details of visiting hours for all Canterbury DHB facilities under Alert Level 3 are available here.
