We are delighted to hear that Public Health England’s infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are set to remain in place for all staff and visitors across all health services. Staff, patients and visitors will also be expected to continue to follow social distancing rules when visiting any healthcare setting as well as using face coverings, mask and other personal protection equipment.
The Chief Nursing Officer for England, Ruth May commented: “Face coverings and social distancing measures will remain in place across healthcare settings so that the most vulnerable people can continue to safely attend hospital, their GP surgery, pharmacy or any other healthcare settings for advice, care and treatment.
“And it is important for the public to continue to play their part when visiting healthcare settings to help protect staff and patients, particularly those who may be more vulnerable to infections. As restrictions are lifted, everyone has a part to play in helping to control Covid by getting vaccinated and acting responsibly”.
At Help in Hearing we continue with our strict Covid protocol as it is our priority to keep our clients and staff healthy and safe. Find our more about our policy here.
