NHS Patients, Staff and Visitors Must Continue To Wear Face Coverings in Healthcare Settings


 


England’s Chief Nurse has today reminded the public that everyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing rules.


 


Covid restrictions will end in many settings in England from Monday.


 


However, Public Health England’s infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are set to remain in place for all staff and visitors. 


 


That means NHS visitor guidance will stay in place across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected. 


                                                             


Staff, patients and visitors will also be expected to continue to follow social distancing rules when visiting any care setting as well as using face coverings, mask and other personal protection equipment.


 


The NHS will continue to support staff in ensuring that the guidance is followed in all healthcare settings.

 

Invitation to Winsford Town PPG

 

Hello

 

We are looking for Winsford patients interested in being involved in a wider Patient Participation Group (PPG) which would bring all of the 5 Winsford practices together and act as the engagement vehicle for the Winsford Care Community.

 

By being part of the Winsford Town PPG, you could hear what is happening in Health and Social Care across the town and be involved in shaping the future direction. We are having an initial meeting on 12th February at 10-12pm at Dene Drive in Winsford, but please don’t let that put you off if the time is unsuitable as you can let us know when best suits you to meet. We want to encourage as many people as possible to be involved so we’re open to looking at bringing people together at weekends and in the evenings.


Also, there are other ways you can be involved, just let us know how you would prefer to feed into the group, we’re open to sharing information, receiving feedback and comments by email for example – we’re keen to do all we can to get people involved in the sharing
of information and the shaping of services locally and we’re open to new ideas and approaches.

 

If you want to attend the meeting on 12th February at 10-12pm at Dene Drive Primary Care Centre Winsford, please contact:
