Visitors and patients visiting any MCH location must wear a face covering (in line with Government guidance) to protect others and further reduce the risk of spreading infection. These face coverings should be worn correctly covering the nose and mouth which are the main confirmed sources of transmission of the virus that causes Covid 19. Our staff will provide a mask for anyone not wearing a face covering and may ask you to leave if you refuse and there is no reason why you are not able to wear one.
Please also note that patients should be attending appointments alone, except on the occasion that they lack capacity to attend alone, or require support in terms of mobility. This is to minimize the number of people within our buildings, maintain social distancing and ensure that they are COVID safe.
Thank you for adhering to these rules, keeping yourself, our staff and the local community safe.
