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.
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:
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.
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.
Thank you for your cooperation.
