After the Government’s announcement last week (19 January 2022) that all plan B measures were to be stepped down this week, the Trust would like to remind the public that protective measures will still be in place in our buildings to protect our most vulnerable patients.
The Covid-19 rate in Plymouth remains high and presents a high risk for patients with other health problems, those who are vulnerable because they are immuno-suppressed or undergoing surgery or treatment with us. To protect them, we ask that you support us, like you have been doing for the last two years, by respecting the infection prevention and control measures in place in our buildings.
As a healthcare setting caring for vulnerable patients, we have a responsibility to keep them as safe as possible and therefore we will be continuing with all of our current protective measures in our hospitals and our other buildings post 26 January 2022, including hand sanitising, wearing of surgical masks, observing social distancing and our Rule of 1 for visiting. This will apply to all of our sites and our vaccination clinic at Home Park.
- If you have a hospital or clinic appointment, please attend alone unless exceptional circumstances apply. This helps us reduce footfall and protect our most vulnerable patients.
- Please respect our Rule of 1 for visiting: 1 visitor for 1 hour per 1 patient per day
- You must wear a surgical mask in our hospitals, clinics and building unless you are exempt
- Please continue to wash your hands regularly and observe social distancing
