St Helier Update
It is important that GPs reassure their patients that St Helier Hospital remains open, A&E remains open, and that we are urging people to attend their planned appointments.
Joint Medical Director Dr Ruth Charlton, said: "A small number of people have tested positive for Covid-19 in the Renal Department and Intensive Care Unit at St Helier Hospital.
“The safety and wellbeing of our patients and staff is our priority and those who tested positive have been isolated from other patients, with arrangements in place to maintain safe and high-quality care.
The situation is isolated to the hospital and there is currently no indication of wider community transmission, but we, alongside our partners in the community, will continue to carefully monitor the situation.
We continue to follow all relevant infection prevention and control guidelines.
Visiting has been restricted in some areas, but as soon as clinicians are confident that the measures can be lifted in a way that is safe for patients and staff, they will be.
The Trust will continue to provide hospital-grade surgical masks at the entrances to our hospitals, and will ask that all visitors wear one throughout their time on site.
The Covid-19 advice from Public Health England has changed:
If you have a temperature over 37.8c or a cough and are well please self-isolate for 7 days. If your symptoms are deteriorating call 111 for further advice. DO NOT come into the surgery.
We are asking patients not to come to the surgery unless absolutely necessary. Our Doctors will triage all patients by phone and decide the best course of treatment.
If you are here to collect paperwork you will be asked if you have any of the above symptoms before being allowed into the building.
Thank you for your understanding
The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:
• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are unwell. You can find the latest information and advice from Public Health England at Further information is available on nhs.uk.
