Face coverings from 19 July 2021

Following the Government's announcement that England will be moving to Step 4 of the COVID-19 roadmap - we'd like to confirm what this means for our patients, visitors and staff from Monday 19 July.

Adhering to government advice: staff, patients, and visitors will be expected to continue wearing masks (unless exempt) when on our sites. This is to help keep everyone safe and prevent further spread of the virus.



 Visitor number limitations will remain in place, but we are currently reviewing this so that we can allow more visitors as soon as it is safe and appropriate to do so. Keep an eye out for further announcements

Building Berkshire Together

Building Berkshire Together

We have just launched our digital platform where you can find all the latest information about our plans to  develop a masterplan, or blueprint, for an amazing hospital, designed and organised from the ground up. This is our opportunity to create a great hospital for local people, delivering outstanding care and treatment, and we want our staff, patients, partners and local communities to help us design it. We want this new hospital to be built with the real needs of patients and staff firmly in mind and would like your expertise, experience, and ambition to flow through the design of our new hospital.

Please visit the site by clicking here, take the survey and tell us what you would like to see as we start to shape the future of health and care at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, one of our six sites that make up the Royal Berkshire Foundation Trust.
