Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The safety of our patients and visitors is our number one priority. Your healthcare is essential and we are actively working with and following guidance from the Department of Health, Public Health England, Health Protection Scotland and Public Health Wales to ensure you are kept safe.

We're proud to support the NHS 

As part of our long-standing partnership, we will be dedicating much of our resource to the NHS . This means that many of our treatments have been suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. Our teams will contact you if you are affected by any of these changes.  

If you are still able to attend the hospital, to support screening for COVID-19, on entering we’re asking everyone to:

  • Report any symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) such as a new, continuous cough or high temperature (above 37.8)

Any patient reporting or displaying any symptoms of coronavirus COVID-19, will be asked to return home and follow the latest government guidance as detailed in our ‘Stay at home’ guidance below and available on the Gov.uk website.

If you are over 70, or have an underlying health condition or are pregnant, we will complete a full risk assessment to ensure that it is safe to continue with your planned appointment. 

We are asking everyone who attends our site to abide by our policy on social distancing. Please ensure that you stand or sit a minimum of two metres apart.  

To protect our patients and colleagues from the potential risk of coronavirus COVID-19, we are currently restricting access to patient visitors in our hospitals to only exceptional circumstances.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation, and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

COVID-19 stay at home guidance

  • If you live alone or are the first person in your household to show symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started.
  • If you live with others then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14-day isolation period. 
  • If you have coronavirus symptoms:
    • do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
    • you do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home
    • testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
  • If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999

If you have an appointment please continue to attend the hospital as normal unless we advise otherwise. We are currently screening all patients and restricting visitor access to our sites.
