Over recent weeks, we have seen the number of infections in the community rise across the country, and the areas we serve are no different. COVID-19 is still circulating and safety remains our highest priority at our healthcare settings.
Despite restrictions lifting in England on July 19 you are still required to wear a face covering (unless exempt) when attending health services. Removal of the legal requirement doesn’t mean that we should stop our current behaviours around social distancing and the use of masks
The Delta variant is becoming more common in our community and pressures on our health and care services are rising so we can’t assume the pandemic is over yet. Please be kind our health and care staff – continuing to follow the guidance is for their safety and yours.
Despite the fantastic progress of our local vaccination programme, we need to ensure we continue to get on top of the virus – and wearing a mask in health and care settings really helps.
If you haven’t had your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine yet, please take up the opportunity at one of the local vaccination sites. You can also book to have your vaccination at our Tickhill Road Hospital site in Doncaster. Simply click here to book your vaccination at a centre near to you. If you want to visit us, simply look for Tickhill Road Hospital (Almond Tree Court) Balby, Doncaster.
