Face masks and social distancing: Due to the rising prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, we strongly encourage healthcare staff and visitors to wear a face covering in all of our settings, particularly in clinical areas and those with high footfall. Please exercise a common-sense approach and personal responsibility to help us reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our patients, workforce and services. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is important to continue to maintain social distancing where possible. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this time. We continue to regularly review our advice based on prevalence in our communities and our hospitals.
The Covid-19 pandemic has caused significant disruption to our NHS services. We have continued to provide care as normal to patients who need urgent treatments (through A&E, Cancer services etc) although many routine appointments and treatments have been postponed.
We are trying to restart many of the routine services that have been put on hold. If you are required to attend one of our hospital sites or community clinics, you will find that the way they are run has now been altered slightly to accommodate social distancing regulations.
Please click on a service below to check for the latest updated information.
If you have a specific question relating to your personal circumstances, please call the number on your appointment letter.
If you are having elective surgery at one of our hospitals, you will be given a Covid-19 test beforehand.
Anyone who is referred into a service from their GP will receive an appointment letter as usual. If your symptoms worsen while you are waiting, please contact your GP.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current increasing pressures from Covid-19 the following services are being kept under review, and any updated information will be posted as soon as possible.
Also, please wear a surgical face mask when attending an outpatients clinic, not a cloth face mask. Surgical face masks are more effective at controlling the spread of viruses.
