Operational Instruction – Quarantine Hotels


What is managed quarantine in a hotel?

To stop the spread of potentially harmful variants in the UK, stricter measures are in place for people who have been in a red list country.  Everyone who arrives in England, and has been in a red list country, must quarantine in a managed quarantine hotel for 10 full days from the point of their arrival. The day of arrival in England will be treated as day zero.

More information on managed quarantine hotels and an up-to-date list of red list countries can be found here.

Operational Instruction – Quarantine Hotels

There are now four managed quarantine hotel’s within the East of England and NHSE/I have produced a national standard operating procedure for Ambulance Trusts to follow. The Operational Instruction sets out the protocol that all EEAST staff should follow when conveying a patient from one of these sites. Please find the instruction here.

Please note that any patients being conveyed to hospital from one of the designated quarantine hotels within the East of England, will require a pre-alert message to the receiving department. This pre-alert information is required in all cases. This is so the hospital can prepare for their arrival and should include the patient’s travel history.
