Looking after your wellbeing during Covid-19

Our current facemask policy for patients and visitors

We are continuing to ask patients, staff and visitors to wear facemasks in some areas of our hospitals to protect themselves and others from COVID.

Areas where you need to wear a facemask are clearly signposted with red ‘you are in a high-risk area’ posters. Please also wear a facemask whenever you are asked to do so by a member of our hardworking team.

Facemasks continue to be made available in all areas of our hospitals for those who feel more comfortable wearing them. Please continue to treat everyone who chooses to wear a facemask with respect – whatever their reasons for doing so may be.
