Visitors and patients asked to wear a mask when attending appointments or visiting as Covid-19 and Flu cases rise again

The number of cases of Covid-19 has risen significantly over the last few weeks both locally and nationally and so we are taking some precautionary measures to limit the spread of both Covid and other respiratory viruses. This is effective from 20 October 2023.

What can you do to help us?

Along with our staff, visitors, outpatients and anyone accompanying them are asked to wear masks in all clinical areas and anywhere they will be in close contact with others for longer periods of time.

Please ask a member of staff if you do not have a mask and they will provide you with one.

We are also asking that anyone coming into our hospitals or community hubs please sanitise their hands, keep their distance from others and avoid visiting if unwell with viral symptoms such as cough, cold or fever.

If you are eligible for a Covid-19 and/ or Flu vaccine, please consider getting yourself protected which in turn helps reduce the risk of transmission.

Thank you for your support.
