COVID-19: Guidance and updates
This page provides information in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes how our services are affected, what our current visiting arrangements are, local and national guidance and what to do if you need urgent support.
If you would like to visit a ward, please discuss this with the ward staff who will be able to discuss further – contact information for each of our wards is available on our service pages.
In circumstances where visitors are unable to come to wards, the staff will support contact by using facetime, telephone, and other ‘virtual’ means.
Support for carers
If you are caring for somebody and need support during the pandemic, you can contact us using our dedicated email address carersQAservice@nsft.nhs.uk.
Help keep our hospitals safe
If you are visiting us, we ask that you help us to keep each other safe by:
- Washing or sanitising your hands when you arrive at the hospital/outpatient area,
- Wearing a face covering (if you are exempt, please discuss this with staff so appropriate arrangements can be made),
- While you are visiting us, wash your hands often, or use hand sanitiser,
- Not visiting us if you have symptoms of COVID-19 (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, loss or change in sense of taste or smell). Instead, you should stay at home and book a test at nhs.uk/coronavirus or call 119
