Patient SafetyThe Trust is committed to putting Patient Safety as our top priority and has signed up to the National Patient Safety Campaign. We are striving to make real measurable improvements in the safety of the care for our patients
Patient Safety Incident Response FrameworkTo support the NHS to further improve patient safety, we are preparing for the introduction of a new Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF), outlining how providers should respond to patient safety incidents and how and when a patient safety investigation should be conducted.
Pendant alarmsThere are a number of different pendant alarm schemes depending on where you live and the level of support that you would like.
People and OD StrategyThis strategy sets out a vision to make our organisation a great place to work in a culture where our people can thrive and provides clear aims and objectives to make this happen.
From Thursday 1 September 2022, all patients, staff, and visitors are no longer required to wear a face mask at St Mary's Hospital and our other Trust sites.
These changes have been made in line with national guidance on the mandated use of face masks in healthcare settings and the reducing numbers of positive cases.
Our visitor policy continues to allow patients two visitors a day for up to an hour between 10am and 8pm, and these no longer need to be pre-booked.
Our restrictions, including mask wearing, will be reviewed regularly based on the current situation at St Mary's Hospital alongside the latest guidance from UK Government and NHS England.
Those with symptoms of a respiratory infection, including COVID-19, and a high temperature or who feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and they no longer have a high temperature.
If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, contact NHS 111.
