We are seeing Covid levels rising in the community, and an increase in the number of Covid-positive patients in our care.

In response, on Saturday we reintroduced our requirement for all colleagues to wear surgical masks while they are working in the hospital. We ask that anyone else coming to the hospital do the same, whether as a patient or a visitor.

Surgical masks should be worn covering the nose and mouth at all times, and of course it remains vital that everyone in the hospital maintain good hand hygiene.

Thank you for your continued support.

Review of these arrangements

We will keep mask wearing under regular review. It is expected that we will continue to adapt and scale our response to Covid-19 in accordance to community infection rates over the coming months.

If you have any questions or queries please speak with a member of staff who will happily help.
