Urgent Patient Face Coverings Appeal

19 June 2020 - Urgent Patient face coverings appeal

The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust is continuing to work hard against the fight of Covid-19. The safety of our patients and our staff is paramount, now more than ever.

Face coverings must be worn at all times in public areas within the hospital to protect you and others. We are asking patients to bring a face covering with them. However, we understand that not everyone will be able to do this which is why we have launched this appeal.

We need your help! Please see the leaflet below for information
