As we move away from COVID-19 restrictions we would like to inform our patients of exactly what you need to do before your hospital visit and what you can expect when you arrive at hospital.
- For patients and staff vaccinated against Covid-19, masks are no longer mandatory within this hospital. We will respect your wish however if you prefer to wear one.
- We would ask that you maintain appropriate hand sanitisation on entering and leaving the building.
- Please remain at home if you have any Covid-19 symptoms. Perform a lateral flow test and only attend your appointment if this is negative.
- We will continue to risk assess all patients admitted for surgical procedures and carry out lateral flow tests as identified through this risk assessment.
Thank you for your continued support in keeping our Hospital a safe environment.

Pre-Surgery Testing Pathway
Prior to a surgical appointment the patient may be asked to self-isolate for up to 7 days.
On arrival at the hospital for the surgical appointment the patient can be helped/guided to the reception entrance and the patient will be able to check in at reception.
Once the patient enters the reception area, they will be asked questions regarding COVID symptoms by a member of staff.
The patient may then require a lateral flow test to allow admission onto the ward.
Patient visiting is based on current guidance and subject to change. Please speak to a member of hospital staff to check for the latest information on patient visiting guidance.
If a patient requires support from another person, the screening also applies to this person. This is in place in both inpatient and outpatient areas.
**Please note, as per the hospital’s Medical Advisory Committee, in line with current guidance, any patient declaring a recent respiratory tract infection to include Covid-19, a 6-7 week postponement is in place for scheduling of surgical procedures**
At Kingsbridge Private Hospital, staff and patient safety is at the heart of everything we do!
