Update to Infection Prevention and Control Measures at ASPH - Face Masks
Due to the rise in COVID-19 in the community, we have taken the decision to reinstate mandatory mask wearing for visitors, patients, and staff to keep everyone safe across the hospitals in the Trust.
Surgical face masks will be required to be worn by staff and members of the public when visiting wards and clinical areas. Face masks will be available in the main entrances of the hospitals and in clinical areas.
We will continue to closely monitor the situation and will update you with any further changes to our Infection Prevention and Control measures.
Thank you for your continued support.

In January 2023, Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust were visited by the CQC (Care Quality Commission), who carried out an unannounced focused inspection at St Peter’s Hospital as part of the national maternity inspection programme. The inspection was to look at how safe and well-led maternity services were. Following the inspection, the CQC published a report on 29 March 2023. Our maternity service has been rated Inadequate.
Following a successful ballot, Junior doctors who are part of the British Medical Association (BMA) and the Hospital Consultants and Specialists Association (HCSA) are expected to take strike action from Monday 13 March to Thursday 16 March. During this period we have taken steps to ensure that emergency care and cancer care continues, however some elective appointments may need to be cancelled.
