Norovirus closes Nuneaton's George Eliot Hospital to visitors

A Warwickshire hospital is closed to visitors due to an outbreak of the winter vomiting bug.

The George Eliot Hospital in Nuneaton is only allowing birth partners, parents of children, and relatives of terminally ill patients to visit.

Its website said that cases of norovirus had been reported on several of the hospital's wards.

It added that the situation would be reviewed daily and that it was in the best interest of patients and staff.

Outpatient appointments and day cases are not affected, but the hospital has advised those suffering from sickness or diarrhoea to contact them to discuss rearranging appointments.
