In line with regional and national guidance, and due to the significant increase in respiratory illnesses, face masks are now required to be worn by DCHS staff, visitors and patients across all our sites.

Masks are required to be worn by colleagues, visitors and patients in:

* All clinical areas including offices attached to clinical areas

* All public areas in our buildings, including receptions and corridors

* When a DCHS member of staff visits a patient's home

Help Us, Help You

We're asking for our community to help us limit the spread of respiratory illnesses, like flu and covid-19, in our hospitals, health centres, and in our community. If you are unwell with covid-19 or any other illness such as a cold or flu, please do not visit our sites. This will help us limit the spread of infection.
