Due to an increase in the prevalence of winter respiratory viruses and the number of patients and staff with flu and COVID-19, we have taken the decision to reintroduce mask wearing in our hospitals from today.
All staff, patients and visitors are asked to wear a face mask – they are available at the entrances to each hospital. Please make sure you wear your mask correctly and it covers your nose and mouth. Also make sure you have clean hands when removing your mask.
We’re taking this step to keep our patients, our colleagues, our visitors and our loved ones safe.
We will of course continue to review the situation closely and will provide any further updates via our visiting arrangements page and on our social media channels.
