Hands, face, space remains in place at RJAH

Patients are being reminded that the equirements to wear a face covering and social distance at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital (RJAH) will remain in place, despite the easing of restrictions in England this week.

During the pandemic, infection prevention and control measures have helped to keep patients and staff safe. During this time, patients and visitors have had to wash their hands, wear face masks and maintain a social distance of two metres.
 
Although the Government confirmed that as of Monday 19 July, it will no longer be a legal requirement to wear a mask, keeping our patients safe remains our priority. For this reason, there will not be any changes to safety measures at RJAH.
 
These safety measures minimise the risk to vulnerable patients and staff and help people feel more confident about coming to our hospital to receive care.
 
Everyone accessing our services or visiting our hospital must wash their hands regularly, wear a face mask and practice social distancing.
 
Visiting arrangements remain unchanged and you can read about them here.
