While we face our third national lockdown, we would like to reassure our community that New Victoria Hospital is open and ready to look after our patients’ health needs in a welcoming and safe environment.
Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Hospital has been committed to enhancing its infection prevention control measures and maintaining New Victoria a Covid-free space, as far as possible.
There have been a few changes to the way the Hospital operates to ensure our patients, staff and Consultants can work in a safe and protected environment.
Our infection prevention measures

- Screening all patients, visitors, staff and consultants, to ensure ‘Covid Safety’ on arrival
- Adherence to Public Health England, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) guidelines, to help limit the spread of Covid-19
- Regular Covid-19 testing for our staff
- Increased cleaning regimes, and the use of different cleaning products during this time
- Social Distancing measures are implemented wherever possible including reception desk screens, floor markings and less seating
- New patient flow and processes for all Outpatients and Inpatients
