Information on the coronavirus

Your safety is our top priority. All coronavirus-related precautions currently in place must be strictly observed. Please take note of the current requirements.

State of health

Please only come to the hospital if you feel generally well – this applies if you are visiting someone or coming for a consultation or surgery appointment. 

If you develop cold symptoms before your surgery, please call your doctor and take a Covid-19 rapid lateral flow test. The result of the consultation will determine whether your procedure can go ahead as planned or if it needs to be postponed. 

If your procedure needs to be postponed, you or your GP should contact our appointment scheduling team immediately.
