The call comes to reduce the number of people through the doors at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital near Oswestry, in a bid to protect staff and patients during the coronavirus outbreak.

There will be an exception for those who require a carer to accompany them.

Those with children are also being advised not to bring them into the hospital.
