COVID-19 HOSPITAL DISCHARGE INFORMATION - It is important that our hospitals are ready to look after people who contract coronavirus (COVID-19) and need hospital care. Due to these pressures, once you no longer need care in hospital, as decided by the health team looking after you, you will be discharged. You will not have a choice over your discharge, but it is always our priority to discharge people to a safe and appropriate place. For more information download the posters below.

OUTPATIENT AND MATERNITY ADVICE - we have now stopped all non-time critical outpatient appointments and x-rays, CT, MRI, ultrasound scans and nuclear medicines. We will also be reducing the number of routine operations and procedures over the next three weeks.

We will continue to provide outpatient appointments, scans and procedures for patients who need them urgently, for example patients with suspected or confirmed cancer.  We will provide these initial outpatient consultations over the phone or by video link. Read more here.
