  • HANDS: Wash hands regularly with soap and water or hand gel if hand washing facilities are not available 
  • FACE: Wear surgical face masks (not coverings) in all public areas in our buildings  
  • SPACE:  Give people space (1m away from people is preferable) wherever possible and ensure workplaces are COVID Secure 
  • FRESH AIR: Ensure areas are well ventilated wherever possible by opening windows, etc 


These requirements will remain in place until further notice. 

Please watch out for further updates but in the meantime, please remember that the safety of all colleagues, volunteers, patients and visitors is an absolute priority for us.          

We appreciate your ongoing support.
