New team to support social distancing at St Mary’s

The Isle of Wight NHS Trust have made several changes to their hospital site since the change in Government guidance around face masks and face coverings.

If you need to visit the hospital for an appointment, blood test or procedure you will notice things are a little different to how they are usually.

The trust now have a number of one way systems around the corridors and you will need to keep left to help maintain social distancing. They have also installed a number of new signs, including floor stickers for the main corridor and some extra special ones for the Children’s Ward to help remind everyone to socially distance.

The new Social Distancing Support Team, who will be wearing orange tabards, will also be on hand to help you as you arrive. You will also need to bring your face covering with you which you will need to wear before you can enter the hospital.
