Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals Visiting Restrictions - Important COVID-19 Update

To protect patients, visitors and staff, the Trust has taken the decision to restrict visiting to all inpatient areas at Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals until further notice. Please click here for the answers to frequently asked questions on the new visiting arrangements.

This will reduce the number of people passing through the hospital and offer the maximum opportunity to reduce transmission of COVID-19.

In line with these measures, we have closed off access to our disabled car park. Please be assured we have extra measures in place for emergency access and additional staffing assembled in key locations.

 

The use of face coverings when visiting hospital

People infected with COVID-19 can have very mild or no respiratory symptoms (asymptomatic) and can transmit the virus to others without being aware of it.

In line with recent recommendations from the World Health Organisation, we are introducing new measures at Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals to keep visitors, patients, and staff safe.

From Monday, 15th June 2020 you will need to wear a face covering when you come to hospital as a visitor or outpatient.
