We are still seeing rising cases of COVID-19 in our communities and in admission to our local hospitals so despite the easing of restrictions in our daily lives, we must continue to follow a rigorous process in health and care settings to keep our patients and our colleagues safe.

    

Despite any changes coming into force from Monday 19 July in the communitycurrent guidance remains in place in hospitals, GP and other primary care buildings and services in central Lancashire, and will not change at this time.  

  

Therefore, all health and social care staff, volunteers, patients and visitors will still be required to continue to follow the below: 

  • HANDS: Wash hands regularly with soap and water or hand gel if hand washing facilities are not available 
  • FACE: Wear a face covering in practice buildings  
  • SPACE: Stay at least 2m away from people wherever possible and ensure you follow the social distancing measures in place 


Thank you for helping us continue to keep our patients and staff safe during these continued challenging times.
