Visiting our sites

At the moment, there is a high prevalence of Covid-19 and influenza in our communities.

Therefore, we are encouraging visitors to any of the Trust’s sites to remain vigilant and take the necessary steps to help protect yourself, your loved ones and the NHS.

Face coverings are available at the entrances of the West Suffolk Hospital and Newmarket Community Hospital, as well as at entry points to ward areas.

Face coverings are mandatory in our emergency department and all ward areas.

Hand sanitiser stations are available throughout the hospitals, and we encourage all those visiting our sites to practice good hand hygiene.

We also urge all those that are eligible to get their Covid-19 and influenza vaccines to do so.

Visitors should stay at home if they have either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough or flu-like symptoms
  • the loss of taste and/or smell.

If you have any questions or need help with Covid-19 vaccinations or testing, please call 119. You can also book Covid-19 tests online.
