Latest advice for patients
Our hospitals are open and treating patients. You can book to see a specialist as we offer a wide range of doctors who are seeing patients for initial consultations by video and phone, or face-to-face where advised by a clinician. Please assume existing appointments are going ahead unless you hear from us otherwise.
We're here to help, so please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.
Supporting the NHS
We are proud to be supporting the NHS in the fight against COVID-19 by making our hospital beds, staff and equipment available to support the national effort. Find out more about how we’re helping the NHS here.
If you have an appointment in the hospital, or have been booked for surgery during this time, it is important that you follow the latest guidance:
If you have a new, continuous cough, a fever, or loss or change in your normal sense of taste or smell, you should stay at home for 10 days from when your symptoms started and ask us to rearrange your appointment. Similarly, if you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll need to stay at home for 10 days from the day the first person in the home started having symptoms, and ask us to rearrange your appointment. Please always check the very latest advice online here before leaving home for your appointment.
