Latest update: Face Coverings

Patients, staff and visitors must continue to wear face coverings in all healthcare settings.

 

England’s Chief Nurse has today reminded the public that everyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing rules.

However, Public Health England’s infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are set to remain in place for all staff and visitors.

That means NHS visitor guidance will stay in place across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected.

Staff, patients and visitors will also be expected to continue to follow social distancing rules when visiting any care setting as well as using face coverings, mask and other personal protection equipment.

The NHS will continue to support staff in ensuring that the guidance is followed in all healthcare settings.

“It is vital that in healthcare settings, we do all we can to reduce the risk of infection for those working in our services and those who need our care.  We urge all our patients to wear some sort of a face covering when attending the surgery.”

 

                      We thank you for your support.
