Message to all our patients:
Due to the ongoing pressures of COVID-19 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 demand. This has meant postponing or delaying some non-urgent operations and outpatient appointments. Urgent operations, including cancer, are continuing 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).
