Visiting times across Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust’s (LPT) community hospitals, inpatient wards and units have been extended to support patients’ and service-users’ health, wellbeing and care.

Visiting can now take place between 11am and 8pm at the community hospitals and children and young people’s wards.

Our extended visiting reflects the commitment of all of our staff to delivering high-quality compassionate care for all.”
