COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

For more specific information for patients and staff, please follow the links below.

 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 distance.
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.
