Cleft.NET.East – COVID-19 (Coronavirus)


Due to the increasing pressures on the NHS caused by Covid-19 (novel Coronavirus), the local NHS needs to ensure that the maximum possible inpatient and critical care capacity is available in our hospitals to respond to this pressing demand.


This means that the local NHS has made the decision to postpone all non-essential outpatient appointments and planned procedures and operations until further notice, starting from the 20th March 2020. We are planning for this to be for a period of at least three months.


Cleft.NET.East will be adhering to these recommendations at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge University Trust and at our Spoke hospital units.

Should you have any questions or need advice during this time please do not hesitate to contact us via email at or if this is not possible please telephone 01223 596272.


For urgent or acute problems requiring medical attention please contact your GP in the first instance, or if appropriate, your local emergency services.
