Message to all our patients:
Due to a rise in the number of people being admitted to hospital with COVID-19, along with the need to maintain services across the Trust, some temporary changes have been made to ensure safe and appropriate staffing levels at all times and to ensure that we have enough beds to meet current and anticipated demand. This includes postponing or delaying some non-urgent operations and outpatient appointments but urgent operations, including cancer, will continue as planned.

Please be assured we are still here for you and if you are offered an appointment please keep it.

Thank you for your help at this really busy time to keep our hospitals for those that need them most and are seriously ill.

If you are feeling unwell and are not sure which service you need, contact NHS 111 for advice. They will make sure that you are seen by the right people, in the right place as quickly as possible whether that is your GP, the Urgent Treatment Centre or the Emergency Department (A&E).
