Restarting services

Cartoon image or NHS nurses, doctors, consultants and health workers

During the COVID-19 pandemic we have continued to provide urgent care and treatments for our patients, although many of our more routine appointments and treatments have been postponed.

We are planning to slowly restart many of the services that have been put on hold, although the way they are now running has been altered to accommodate social distancing measures.

In line with other NHS organisations, we will be scheduling patient’s treatment in order of clinical priority. However, patients will need to be prepared for longer waits than prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please note – if you are having elective (planned) surgery at one of our hospitals, you will be given a COVID-19 test and then asked to self-isolate before your admission into hospital.

If there has been any change in your clinical condition, please contact your GP. If you have any further questions, please use the information provided on your appointment letter(s) to contact the relevant service. If you do not have access to this information please contact the Patient Support Service (opens in new tab) who will be able to help you.
