COVID-19: Update regarding outpatient appointments

Given the latest instructions from the government to stay at home to combat the coronavirus epidemic, we are working hard to comply by ensuring we reduce the number of non-essential medical appointments.


With immediate effect, all non-essential outpatient appointments will be stood down and your appointment will undergo a clinical review by the appropriate specialist. Following the clinical review, unless your appointment is essential, it may be replaced with a non-face to face appointment such as a telephone consultation or it may be deferred for a clinically-appropriate period of time.


This means if you have an appointment booked over the coming weeks please do not attend the appointment unless advised otherwise by the Trust. If your appointment is deemed to be essential  we will contact you – you do not need to contact us.
