Important information: To keep you safe from COVID when attending the hospital

This guidance is provided for your safety and the safety of our patients, visitors and staff at Kettering General Hospital. We would ask you to please follow this guidance to protect and respect.
 
Restrictions as of Monday 19th July 2021
 
Our restrictions will remain in place across the hospital. This includes a requirement for you to:
Protect and Respect please wear a mask. Wash your hands and maintain social distancing
  • Wear a mask or face covering
  • Social distance of at least 2 metres
  • Wash or gel your hands regularly
  • Reschedule your appointment if you have any symptoms of COVID
  • And if visiting or coming for a pre-planned appointment we would encourage you to complete a lateral flow test before visiting
By following these five simple steps you can stop the spread of COVID and save lives.
Why we are requiring you to wear a face covering
 
We can all play a role in reducing the spread of COVID and keeping our hospitals safe. If you are coming to hospital as a visitor or for planned outpatient care, you must wear a face covering at all times. This is for your safety and the safety of other patients and staff.
 
We are asking that you to plan in advance and bring a face covering with you.
 
You will need to wear your face covering at all times for it to be effective:
 
  • It should cover your nose and mouth while allowing you to breathe comfortably
  • You should not touch your face
  • You should wash your hands or use hand sanitiser before putting it on and taking it off. You should also avoid touching the front or the inside of the covering, and handle it by the ear loops or ties
  • You should change your face covering regularly
  • You can find advice on how to wear and make your own face covering at home on the Government website.
 
Government guidance on the use of face coverings generally, is also available on their website.
 
For some people, wearing a face covering may be difficult due to physical or mental health conditions. In these instances, other measures will be considered on a case by case basis, for example timed appointments and being seen immediately on arrival. Please talk to our security team on arrival.
 
If you are deaf or hearing impaired, our staff have a range of communication options to ensure that they can communicate effectively with you. This might include the use of clear masks where possible, as well as visual aids such as writing things down, speech to text apps and sign language.
 
All visitors will be expected to comply with existing social distancing and hand hygiene measures in addition to wearing face coverings while in the hospital setting.
 
An easy read on face coverings and other COVID information is available on the Mencap website.
