Woking Community Hospital has introduced a series of measures to ensure you are kept safe during your visit.
- There are 3 designated entrances:
- Main Entrance (directly opposite the car park) - Bedser Hub, Neurophysiology
- Main Outpatients Entrance (all Outpatient appointments, Ophthalmology, Audiology, X-rays)
- Walk in Centre Entrance - walk in centre only
- You will be only permitted into the building 10 minutes before your appointment time.
- Please try and attend your hospital visit by yourself. Anyone attending with you is likely to be refused entry to the hospital / asked to wait in the car unless there is a valid reason for them to support you during your appointment.
- Inside each entrance is a ‘screening’ station. You will be asked a series of COVID related screening questions and also have your temperature taken. To avoid a wasted trip on the day please do not attend if you are experiencing a fever, fatigue, cough or sore throat or currently taking antipyretic medication to combat fever (paracetamol / ibuprofen etc).
- You will be asked to use one of the wall mounted gel dispensers on arrival.
- You will need to wear a face covering that protects your mouth and nose when you come to the hospital and for the duration of the visit. Face coverings can be cloth and / or homemade and advice on how to make one can be found on the gov.uk website. Face coverings worn as part of religious beliefs or cultural practice are also acceptable, providing they are not loose and cover the mouth and nose.
- If queuing for entry to the hospital, the screening desk, a reception desk or sitting in one of the waiting areas please maintain at least a 2 metre distance from any other patient.
- We have reduced the number of patients booked into each session to allow time for the additional screening measures.
- Finally, although you are not required to self-isolate for this appointment, please ensure you minimise contact with others as much as possible in the 14 days leading up to your appointment.
Please support Woking Community Hospital in following the guidance written above and in doing so helping to keep patients and staff safe.
