Please continue coming to appointments unless:
- We’ve contacted you to cancel or reschedule your appointment
- You have a high temperature and/or a new continuous cough
- You’ve been told to self-isolate
If you’re showing symptoms of COVID-19 (which are either a new continuous cough OR fever OR loss of/ change in smell OR taste) or are self-isolating, please do not come to our hospitals or clinics. Instead, contact your service to inform them and rearrange your appointment.
If you’re expecting a home visit, please contact us if you or anyone in your home are showing symptoms of COVID-19.
Depending on your needs, we may be able to offer an alternative such as online consultations/Skype chats, or a call if you’re unable to attend an appointment.
We’ve recently updated our guidelines for patients and visitors. Please read these before coming to our hospitals or receiving care at your home.
