Welcome to the Visitor Information Section
Norovirus, better known as the winter vomiting bug, is the most common stomach bug in the UK, affecting people of all ages.
The virus, which is highly contagious, causes vomiting and diarrhoea. As there is no specific cure, you have to let it run its course, but it should not last more than a couple of days. If you get norovirus, make sure you drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration and practise good hygiene to help prevent it from spreading.
If you have had vomiting or diarrhoea or been in close promity to someone who has, please do not visit friends or relatives in hospital until you have been symptom free for at least 48 hours.
