We are re-opening some hospital services carefully and safely.
We are re-opening some outpatient clinics, some tests and scans, and we are now able to carry out more surgical procedures.
But because the current Government advice is to maintain distance between people wherever possible, and to take extra care to protect patients and staff, we will not be able to re-open every service straight away and we need to make sure there are not too many people in the hospital at any one time.
This means your hospital appointment or surgery will be very different. Please see our Coronavirus advice page for information and advice.
If you have a video appointment, please visit our video appointments page.
Our emergency services are operating as normal and are safe to use. So if you have concerns about your health, eg, if you are suffering from chest pain, please seek help as normal.
If you are pregnant, please visit our maternity page for advice.
Restrictions on visiting are in place to keep patients safe. For more information on visiting restrictions, please visit our information and advice page. The Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) can help you send a special message, happy birthday or anniversary wishes to your loved one to cheer them up and let them know you are thinking of them.
