COVID-19: patient update

Further to the Government announcement of a period of lockdown for four weeks this month, we are working hard to ensure that all elective surgery, diagnostics and outpatient appointments will go ahead as planned.

This includes continuing to offer virtual appointments where possible, building on these significant advances to ensure an efficient and high quality experience for our patients. Face-to-face appointments across all specialities that cannot be carried out virtually are also expected to continue – a thorough checklist and assessment process is in place to identify which patients these appointments are suitable for.

If we are required to make any changes to arrangements, we will contact patients individually to discuss plans for further care and treatment.

Inpatient comment:

The staff and care have been excellent. They have made sure I have felt comfortable, secure and safe. They are wonderful and exemplary in their commitment.
