COVID-19 Policy

At The Hamptons Hospital, you can be assured that your safety is our priority.

We follow UK government Public Health guidelines to protect our patients to ensure our hospital is Covid-19 secure.

Our current safety measures;

We advise all our patients to notify us if they are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms.

We ask patients if they are unwell to reschedule their appointment until they test negative for Covid-19 (LFT) or they no longer
have symptoms.

On arrival, we screen patients with a Covid-19 risk assessment

Visitors are permitted to attend appointments if they are Covid-19 symptom-free. We ask that visitors are kept to a minimum.

We have multiple hand sanitiser stations located throughout the hospital for patient use.

Face masks are no longer mandatory, but patients may be asked to wear a face covering in clinical areas unless exempt.

If you have any concerns about Covid-19 our team is on hand to support you and answer any questions you may have.
