Face coverings to be worn in our buildings by visitors and outpatients
From Monday 15 June all visitors and outpatients will be asked to wear face coverings when attending one of our buildings. From this date our staff will be wearing face masks.
This is to help restrict the spread of the virus through droplets that can be sprayed in to the air by coughing and sneezing. It is backed up by new advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO) that face coverings can halt the spread of the disease.
This is another measure that will complement what we are already doing to keep our service users, staff and visitors safe:
• We are by practicing social distancing in all our clinical and non-clinical areas
• Our staff already wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
• We regularly clean all our areas and practise frequent hand washing
If you are visiting one of our sites from Monday please bring a face covering with you. If you don’t have a face covering or turn up with without one, we can give you one when you arrive.
Help us to stay safe and slow the spread of coronavirus.
