Changes to mask-wearing requirements

Please note that as of Friday, 24 June, 2022 patients and visitors to the Trust no longer need to wear a face-covering unless they want to.

There are some clinical areas and wards where we will continue to ask visitors and outpatients to wear a mask or face covering (unless exempt) when they may be in close contact with patients with compromised immune systems or Viral Respiratory Infections.

For those who wish to wear a face mask, dispensers will continue to be stocked at all entrances and patients and visitors are encouraged to continue to gel their hands at these points and on entry to wards and other settings. Please be respectful of other people’s choice to wear a face covering.
