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.
We aim to support people living with Rheumatological conditions to live life as well as possible. We provide a range of services to help people gain more knowledge and improve their skills. In addition, we aim to build patient’s confidence to enable them to manage their health and wellbeing. Our service is tailored to each individual patient’s needs and preferences.
At present during the Covid 19 pandemic we are conducting most appointments via telephone or video and there are only a limited number of face to face appointments in the hospital sites.
