Visiting Broadmoor

In an attempt to reduce the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19), please be aware that as of 5th November 2020, all social visits, including from main carers, have now been stopped at Broadmoor Hospital.

Wherever possible, we are asking that legal consultations take place over the phone.

We understand that this may be upsetting for you and patients.

The Broadmoor Social Work team will continue to support you through these difficult times and we are exploring some alternative means of communication between patients and their families and will update you accordingly.

If you need to speak to a Social Worker, please contact 01344 754523

Just to remind you, you can still have telephone, letter and email contact at this time.

We thank you for your consideration nd are sure you will understand that stopping all social visits is to keep both yourselves and patients, safe from the spread of Coronavirus

Patients at Broadmoor benefit greatly from keeping in touch with their families and friends while they are in hospital and we encourage visits from family and friends.
