Face mask guidance

Friday 1 July update:

Following a rapid increase in the prevalence of Covid-19 nationally, in our hospital and the community as well as an increase in the number of staff absent due to Covid-19, it has become necessary to reintroduce mask-wearing in all inpatient and outpatient clinical areas.

Staff and visitors in all inpatient and outpatient clinical areas are now asked to wear masks to protect themselves and others. It is not a requirement to wear them in non-clinical areas, such as public corridors and cafes.

We will provide masks for staff, patients and visitors if needed. Please speak to a member of staff if you’re unsure or need further details of areas where face masks are required.
