19th July 2021 – Information for Patients

Posted by: deborahhollings - Posted on:

The highest priority for the NHS remains the safety of staff, patients and visitors.

While COVID restrictions will end in many settings in England from 19 July, everyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering (unless they are exempt) and follow social distancing rules.
Public Health England’s infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are therefore set to remain in place for all staff and visitors and across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dentists, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected.

NHS patients, staff and visitors must continue to wear face coverings and follow social distancing measures in healthcare settings after 19 July.

Please help us to reduce the risk of infection for our staff and patients by following the guidance. Thank you. https://pic.twitter.com/iivfosWMmS
