Important information: The use of face coverings and gloves when coming to into 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.
 
Following recommend recommendations from the World Health organisation, and in line with UK government guidance, we're introducing new measures at KGH to keep visitors, patients and staff safe. From Monday 15 June 2020 you will need to wear a face covering at all times inside our hospital. Find out more

Please remove your gloves - Good hand hygiene is one of the keys to defeating Coronavirus

  • If you are wearing gloves when attending our clinics you will be asked to remove them
  • We will ask that you wash your hands with soap or sanitiser
  • You may sanitise your hands and reapply your gloves before you leave

Stay at Home if you have Coronavirus Symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
  • or a high temperature and / or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

How long to stay at home

  • if you have symptoms, stay at home for 7 days
  • if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.

If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.

Accessibility Checker

We have been working with AccessAble to produce Accessibility Guides for people visiting the hospital. AccessAble have been providing access information for 18 years now and are the UK’s most trusted source of access information.
 
AccessAble have visited and assessed all departments, wards, services (including car parking), amenities and toilet facilities to collect factual information, measurements and to take photographs which when combined together create an Accessibility Guide. The information provided is totally pan disability covering much more than just steps, ramps and toilets. AccessAble look at everything from signage, lighting levels, seating, hearing assistance systems and much more.
 
The KGH Accessibility Guides will be constantly reviewed and updated to ensure that they are accurate and up to date. To view the Accessibility guides you can either visit the KGH guide on the AccessAble website, alternatively visit the App store on iOS or Google Play on android and download the AccessAble app.
