Coronavirus (COVID-19) – information update

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

It is no longer mandatory for staff and patients to wear a face covering in our Outpatients Departments.  It is now a personal choice and we will continue to provide masks for those who would like to wear one.  Clinical staff may still wear a mask during some diagnostic tests

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 735 459.

Stay at home if you have symptoms of coronavirus

Stay at home if you have either:
A new continuous cough
High temperature (of 37.8 degrees
centigrade or higher)
Loss of smell or taste

Do not go to a GP surgery, community pharmacy or hospital. Go online at 111.nhs.uk
Call NHS 111 only if you need to speak to someone because your symptoms cause you significant concern.
