Coronavirus (COVID-19) – information update

Updated: 19 July 2021

Although COVID-19 restrictions are ending from Monday 19 July, Public Health England guidance for healthcare settings will remain in place. All staff and patients will be expected to continue to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing. This will help reduce the risk of infection for those working in our services and those who need our care.

In accordance with NHS guidance that people should seek the treatment they need, we continue to be available to our patients during the coronavirus outbreak.

We have made a range of adjustments in our Outpatients Departments to ensure that patients can attend appointments in safety. We have also introduced phone and video consultations where appropriate.

If you have any questions about your appointment, please call us on 01306 733 272.
