We raised the issue of social distancing in the wards with senior hospital management after members contacted us following a previous bulletin.

There’s been a good response from management - not perfect, but credit where credit's due - as far as getting barriers in place for areas that deal directly with the general public.

But the issue in the wards needs to be urgently addressed.

We were advised in the meeting that new protocols would be developed and issued to decrease the number of staff collectively meeting, so while we wait for that to happen our advice is to politely remind staff coming into units and wards that social distancing rules apply for everyone’s safety.

Please contact us if there's an issue on your unit or ward.
