Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Our priority is to keep our staff and patients safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Following the latest government instructions on social distancing, we can confirm that patients with medical appointments should still attend, unless they have been informed otherwise by the hospital.  

Unless you have a medical appointment or need to attend the Emergency Department, please do not come to the hospital site. 

Non-emergency surgery and outpatient appointments at our hospitals

Following a continuing rise in the number of seriously unwell Covid-19 patients being admitted to our hospitals, we have taken the difficult decision to reschedule non-emergency surgery and some outpatient appointments. Read more.

Testing for coronavirus before a hospital procedure

The Department of Health and Social Care have provided guidance that sets out how and when to use a PCR home test kit to test for COVID-19 before a hospital procedure.

Please do not attend your appointment if you are symptomatic.

Also, please do not arrive earlier than 15 minutes before your appointment.
