Please wear a face covering or mask if you are coming into the hospital
As routine elective activity returns to the QEH, extra safety measures have been put in place to protect patients and staff. This means that all patients coming onto site will need to bring and wear a face covering. This can be a cloth face mask or scarf and QEH staff will also be wearing facemasks while on site.
Hand sanitising stations at each entrance – ensuring you can clean your hands
on arrival and when leaving the site and floor stickers have been laid
throughout the main hospital corridors making it easier for everyone to socially
Our routine (elective) care and treatment will be resuming at around 50% of capacity compared to normal, in line with national guidance and other NHS Trusts. This is to help ensure that extra cleaning can take place in-between patients and allow social distancing rules to be adhered to. Virtual and telephone consultations will continue for many patients where appropriate.
If you are self-isolating
You should not attend (as a visitor or patient) if you should be self-isolating because you, or somebody close to you, has, or has had, symptoms of Covid-19 such as a high temperature, new, continuous cough, or loss or change to their sense of smell or taste). We are not accepting visitors who have tested positive for COVID-19 and should be isolating for the required time frame.
Parking will be free for all patients, visitors and staff. We hope this move will make this difficult situation slightly better for our patients and staff. It will also make it more affordable to everyone to use their cars, rather than public transport, to get to the hospital for urgent appointments and care, and to our staff who are coming into work to care for our patients. These changes apply to the QEH site in Gayton Road, King’s Lynn, and at car parks at North Cambridgeshire Hospital in Wisbech, where services including community midwives and maternity clinics are based.
