Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
Since the end of January 2020, 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.
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. Over the last year or so, we have also had to delay or pause some non-emergency treatments to allow us to deal safely with Coronavirus - please be assured we are working hard to restore services as quickly as possible.
