We would like to clarify the COVID-19 situation at Yeovil Hospital:
We are currently managing outbreaks of COVID-19 within two wards (this was previously three) and have taken a number of steps to ensure the safety and wellbeing of patients and prevent spread of the virus within the hospital. An ‘outbreak’ refers to more than one patient or staff member in an area.
We have been in contact with the families of all patients staying on these wards to advise them of the actions being taken.
As rates of COVID-19 continue to rise, outbreaks such as this are increasingly likely within hospitals. Our hospital is well practiced in managing such events and doing so in a way that enables other parts of the hospital to operate safely as normal.
If you have an appointment, please attend as planned unless you hear directly from us.
We would like to remind people of the crucial importance of following the ‘hands, face, space’ guidance to protect themselves and others.
The team at Yeovil Hospital
