Coronavirus outpatient appointment guidance

In response to the national guidance issued regarding coronavirus (COVID-19), we are working to provide the majority of our outpatient appointments virtually (not face-to-face), with telephone clinics and video clinics for our patients where appropriate.

Please do not attend your outpatient appointment at The Princess Alexandra Hospital, St Margaret’s Hospital or Herts and Essex Hospital if your appointment is after Sunday, 22 March.

Our teams will call you before your appointment is due to advise you if you are required to attend a face-to-face appointment, so please do not call the hospital, as we are extremely busy.

We will ensure that we keep you updated - thank you for your understanding and support.

Radiology and cardiology diagnostics appointments

All appointments for radiology and cardiology diagnostics will continue as normal unless you are in self isolation, so cannot attend for your scan. Please notify the team via the telephone number on your appointment letter if this applies to you.

Thank you to you all at work in these tough times. You are all brilliant trying so save lives and trying to beat this horrible virus. Without you we don’t know where we would be now. Love to you all in these challenging times for our NHS.
