Mask Wearing Guidance Update

With immediate effect, when more than one metre apart, surgical masks do not need to worn by our colleagues, patients or visitors when in corridors, offices or non-clinical areas (including ward corridors). It is a personal choice if you wish to continue wearing a mask.

Our colleagues will still need to wear a mask when delivering direct patient care, and when in a ward bay or side room – even if they are more than one metre apart.
