Planned (elective) care: update

We are currently very busy and may need to reschedule non-urgent outpatient appointments

Information icon

Due to the increasing number of coronavirus patients, we have paused all non-urgent inpatient activity and day case surgery, and are currently only offering face-to-face outpatient appointments in urgent and some cancer cases that cannot take place virtually.

If you have an appointment for planned surgery we will be in touch about rescheduling your procedure.

We are continuing with some urgent video and phone consultations for outpatient appointments to avoid unnecessary trips to hospital. However, we are currently very busy and may need to reschedule your appointment. We will contact you to let you know how and when your appointment will take place. If you haven’t heard from us within 24 hours of your appointment, please assume that it has been cancelled – we will be in touch with you as soon as we can to rearrange.

For all the latest information about our services during the pandemic please visit our coronavirus web section.

If you have a health concern, contact your GP practice or use the NHS 111 online service for quick health advice.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
