News

Sherwood Forest Hospitals have confirmed today that they are treating a patient who has coronavirus at King’s Mill Hospital. 

In a statement on their website they say, 'every infection prevention precaution is being taken and staff caring for the patient are trained and equipped to do so safely'.

The rest of the press release reads as follows: 

'Patients with out-patient and in-patient appointments should still come to hospital unless they have a new-onset cough or fever in which case they should phone the number given in their appointment letter to check if they should attend. If any appointments are have to be postponed you will have been informed about this directly. 

People who need to attend for urgent or emergency care and who have a new-onset cough or fever should let staff know as soon as they arrive so that they can be appropriately managed. As always, visitors with cold or flu like symptoms should not visit patients in our hospitals. Please visit 111.nhs.uk or call 111 for more details. 

We would encourage people to visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19 for the latest information on COVID-19, to find out what the symptoms are and how to help prevent the spread. 

Everyone has a role to play in helping to prevent the spread of infection. Please help by following the public health advice:    

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available. 
  • 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. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. 
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.'
