A ward at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee is closed to new admissions due to several suspected cases of the Norovirus.

Ward 6 has been closed to new patients as a precaution to prevent the spread of the virus, also known as the winter vomiting bug, and NHS Tayside has said that all appropriate infection control measures have been put in place.

The health authority is asking anyone who may be feeling unwell or experiencing vomiting and diarrhoea not to visit friends and family members who are in hospital and until at least 48 hours after they are free of all symptoms.
