Coronavirus COVID-19 information
With the evolving situation around the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we are working through plans to limit the time our patients need to spend at the hospital. Where it is appropriate to do so, we are converting some face to face attendances into telephone appointments. If this applies to you we will be contacting you separately. In addition patients who are attending outpatient appointments or other appointments/procedures should attend by themselves unless they need assistance. Please also be aware we have changed our visiting arrangements.
