We are moving towards Step 4 of restrictions being lifted. This allows members of public to make informed decisions through guidance, rather than law. We like every other health care setting will follow NHS England’s advice, whichis: NHS visitor guidance will stay in place across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected.This means staff, patients and visitors will be expected to continue to follow social distancing rules as well as using face coverings, masks and will continue to wear other personal protection equipment.
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed when circumstances change.
Please visit the NHS news page for more information.
