We continue to ask patients to wear face coverings to their appointments. Clinical staff in the building will continue to wear PPE tp reduce the risk of transmission.
You will be in close proximity to clinicians and potentially other vulnerable patients when you come for your appointment and it is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19 even if you are fully vaccinated. It is therefore important for us to continue with the measures we currently have in place to keep patients and staff safe, and to minimise disruption to our service.
Everyone must remain cautious regarding COVID-19. Please keep yourself and others safe by booking for your COVID-19 vaccination when invited.
The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
