To reduce the number of visits to the hospital by members of the public, we are changing how we provide outpatient care.
We are only asking people to come to the hospital if is it essential for you to see a health professional because of your current health condition, or you need urgent investigations or treatment for a new problem.
If you are due to have a hospital appointment within the next 4 weeks your hospital department will call you and explain what will happen next.
If you’ve not received a call, please come to the hospital for your appointment.
What you should do if you are self isolating and have been asked to attend an outpatient appointment in the next 7 days
If you develop COVID-19 symptoms and are due to come to the hospital for an outpatient appointment, or are self-isolating because someone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms, please stay at home and follow the guidance on self-isolation on the NHS Coronavirus website. Please call the hospital department to tell them that you are unable to attend. They will advise you on what will happen next.
If you are self-isolating because you are over 70, or have a condition that puts you in a high risk group and don’t have COVID-19 symptoms, you will have only have been told to attend an outpatient appointment because it is essential for your care.
