Face coverings and masks

If you are visiting the Trust for whatever reason, you are now required to wear a face covering or mask throughout the entire building(s). This is applicable to hospital buildings and community buildings/clinics etc. We have 'stations' available at all main entrances where you can sanitise your hands and put on a face mask. Please also remember that when entering a clinical area, you will be asked to remove the face covering/mask and replace it with a 'clinical grade' PPE mask.

We appreciate your cooperation in this and thank-you for helping to keep our hospital and community settings COVID-Secure.

The Friends and Family Test (FFT) survey is very quick way for you to share feedback about your experience and will only take about 2 minutes to complete. The link below can be used to access the survey, which asks the question: Overall, how was your experience of our service?
