Restoration of services following Covid-19


In March 2020 Ealing Community Partners were required by NHS England to make urgent changes to the services we deliver in light of the NHS response to the rapidly evolving Covid-19 situation.


These changes were in order to respect national guidance and take account of the need for social distancing, preventing unnecessary travel and social interaction (including for routine healthcare) and prioritising delivery of essential services over those services which were stopped or partially stopped.


  • From July 2020, we are now seeking to resume all services although we will continue to:

  • Consider alternatives to face to face contact where appropriate (eg telephone or video consultation), particularly for initial contacts.

  • Wear personal protective equipment (face mask, gown and surgical gloves) for all patient care
  •  
  • Prioritise care according to clinical urgency, which may mean some longer waiting times than usual for routine services.


Special note for Clayponds Hospital - where there are patients with symptoms of possible Coronavirus, they will be isolated (either alone or in cohort) and tested under the direction of infection control colleagues.


Limited visiting is now permitted to Clayponds Hospital - please discuss with the reception or ward staff about restrictions in place to avoid disappointment.


Visitors are not permitted to the NHS Mary Robinson Unit.
