Update 24 March 2020

Following yesterday’s government announcement on stricter measures to tackle the spread of COVID-19, the James Paget University Hospital is implementing the following with immediate effect:

· No visitors will be allowed into the hospital to see patients, unless there are exceptional circumstances agreed with the ward manager in advance.

· All routine face-to-face outpatient appointments and elective procedures will be postponed from today. Patients will be informed in due course about further arrangements but should not come to the hospital unless specifically asked to do so.

· Urgent appointments and emergency surgery will continue as normal.

· Our A&E department remains open for patients requiring urgent care. But please remember that people should not visit the hospital if they have the symptoms of COVID-19, which includes a high temperature and/or a new continuous cough.

In the coming days, the hospital will be split into two ‘zones’ to protect both patients and staff, as we continue to accelerate our plans for dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

These clearly-marked zones will be designed to keep patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 separate from people who are not infected:

· Green zones will be used for treating patients who do not have the COVID-19 virus.

· Yellow zones will be used for treating patients who are suspected or confirmed as having COVID-19.

This will include the creation of a temporary A&E facility specifically for patients suffering from severe respiratory illness.

As you will understand, these measures are being introduced in line with national guidance and instruction. We would like to thank all our patients in advance for their co-operation and understanding.

Trust Chief Operating Officer Joanne Segasby said: “As the Chief Medical Officer has stated, NHS services are likely to come under intense pressure as the coronavirus spreads, and we need to ensure that we have as many beds available as possible to care for patients with severe respiratory problems when the number of infections peaks.

“Therefore, in line with well-established plans for situations like this, every hospital in England has now been asked to suspend all non-urgent elective work for at least three months, so we can train our staff and adapt certain areas.

“Urgent and emergency cases and cancer treatments will be carrying on as normal, but we know many people waiting for treatment will be disappointed or worried, and we will be contacting everyone affected as soon as possible.

 

Update 18 March 2020

The James Paget University Hospital has today set up a dedicated helpline for people who have enquiries about their appointments/procedures or visiting the hospital. The number is 01493 453300. Please note that, at this time, appointments and procedures are currently going ahead as planned and that we will advise via this page if this changes. Please use this number instead of contacting ward/patient areas direct as it is intended to help free-up our frontline staff so that they have more time to dedicate to their patients. If you think you may have coronavirus symptoms please visit; https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/.

You can get more information and advice here; https://www.gov.uk/…/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-t… - Thank you.

Further to our statement yesterday confirming that there are patients at our hospital who have tested positive for COVID-19, please be aware that no further information about these patients will be released at this time.

An extensive ‘contact tracing’ exercise is now underway by Public Health England to trace anyone who might have had close (face to face) contact. Close contacts will be given health advice about symptoms and what to do if they become unwell in the 14 days after they had contact with the confirmed case.

Dr Hazel Stuart, Medical Director, said: “To protect yourself, please be scrupulous with your hygiene and avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth and use and then bin tissues if you cough or sneeze. Thorough hand washing will help to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

 “Currently, patients with appointments or those who need to attend for urgent or emergency care should still come to hospital.”

“A dedicated helpline will be up and running from 9am on Wednesday 18 March”.
