Guidance On Face Masks At Our Healthcare Services Continues (3)

Everyone accessing or visiting our healthcare services must wear a face mask and follow social distancing rules.

The national guidance for healthcare settings remains unchanged. This means anyone coming into one of our hospitals must continue to:

  • Clean your hands before entering and leaving the building and use the hand sanitiser outside each ward, department or area.
  • Wear a surgical face mask (unless exempt from doing so) which are available at all hospital entrances. Guidance around exemptions is available on the Government website. Please notify us on attendance if you are exempt from wearing a face mask. The Trust will endeavour to make reasonable adjustments, if appropriate.
  • Give others space. Continue to follow the maximum room capacity advice.

These measures are important so that the most vulnerable people can continue to safely attend hospital, and to help protect our staff and patients by reducing the risk of infection.

Please do not attend if you have any COVID-19 symptoms/have tested positive or you've been advised to self-isolate.
