What does screening involve?

Screening involves:

  • Answering a series of questions
  • Having your temperature taken

Once you have been assessed, you are given a dated sticker to show that you have been screened. You wear this sticker while you are at the hospital.

You can help us to speed up the screening process by completing our Visitor Registration form before coming to hospital.
