Covid Safety Measures
The COVID-19 pandemic means life has changed for us all and we’re aware that you may have some concerns about attending your diagnostic imaging or rehabilitation appointment. It’s okay to feel this way and, with this in mind, we’re pleased to say that across our network of hospitals and associates a series of safety measures are being implemented to help protect our patients and colleagues from the potential risk of COVID-19.
Some of the key changes include;
Screening – This will take place within hospital settings where your temperature may be checked together with any key symptoms of COVID-19. Only patients that are undergoing surgery will be provided with a COVID-19 test.
Social Distancing – Our hospital network are currently operating a no visitors policy. Therefore, please come alone to your outpatient appointment. We are asking everyone who attends an appointment to abide by policies in place on social distancing – please ensure that you stand or sit a minimum of two metres apart, where able to do so.
Enhanced standards cleaning and infection prevention – Within our network we are ensuring everyone has easy access to handwashing and hand sanitisers and clinical areas are cleaned after every appointment and staff use appropriate personal protective equipment.
Should I still come for my appointment?
Please assume planned appointments will go ahead unless you hear from us otherwise. During the current situation, we ask that you only attend for appointments if you have been invited to do so. Please always check the very latest government advice and updates online regarding coronavirus before leaving home for your appointment and contact us to rearrange your appointment if you’re self-isolating.
Should I attend if I feel unwell?
If you have any of the symptoms below or feel unwell please call our team to rearrange your appointment;
- New Continuous Cough
- High Temperature (above 37.8)
- A loss or change to your sense of taste or smell
If you believe that you may be at risk of having coronavirus, please do not attend your appointment. Please follow Public Health England advice at: www.111.nhs.uk/COVID-19
