Covid: Nottingham Hospitals update on deaths, beds and vaccinations this week

Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG release weekly updates on the Covid situation in our hospitals. 

A note from the CCG on healthcare settings:

There will be no immediate changes in clinical settings following the removal of restrictions in the community.

This includes the requirement for staff, patients, and visitors to wear a face covering in healthcare settings.

Reducing the transmission of the virus alongside the roll out of the vaccine programme remains the most effective defence against the entry and spread of Covid-19 in healthcare settings and as such we will continue to ask the public to follow this guidance in health settings.
