Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
Since the end of January, when the NHS declared the Coronavirus outbreak a national serious incident, the RD&E has undergone a huge number of changes as we have worked to respond to the outbreak and protect and care for our patients and staff.
Please remember, we are still here for you! It is very important that you feel safe to come to hospital if you need care – the changes we have made are for your protection.
We have had to make changes to our working environment and how we care for you – in hospital, at home and elsewhere. These include making sure we follow social distancing and face-covering guidelines, while still providing great care. We have had to delay or pause some non-emergency treatments to allow us to deal safely with Coronavirus.
We know these changes have been a challenge that has involved sacrifices for patients and staff, but we are working hard to restart and restore services.
