Essential visiting only at Uist and Barra Hospital has been extended until further notice, NHS Western Isles has announced.

The curb on visitors is in place due to COVID-19 and came into force on Sunday.

Essential visiting is for inpatients who require more frequent visits, including women in labour, patients receiving end-of-life care, patients with mental health issues, dementia, learning disability or autism, and children.
