Visiting update

From 1 January 2022, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend adult in-patient visiting in order to help protect our vulnerable patients. Please visit here for more information. 

Patient appointments

As we continue to see a rise in our urgent care admissions, a surge in admissions of Covid positive patients, and workforce shortages created by Covid isolation, some appointments for planned care may need to be delayed.

We will continue to prioritise urgent and emergency care and cancer treatments and we will do everything we can to avoid delaying care. If we need to take the difficult decision to delay appointments, we will contact affected patients directly to let them know. 

If you do not hear from us, please attend as requested in your appointment letter.


Bereavement Centre

We are here to help following the death of a loved one.

We help with:

  • Getting a death certificate
  • Formally registering the death
  • Referral of a death to the Coroner.

You will need to call us so that we can take essential details first before we meet you.

Calling us the day after the death is best. If we are not available when you call, you can leave a voicemail message and we will call you back shortly after.

Please don’t visit us without an appointment. If you do you could have a lengthy wait to see someone, and we would not wish to cause you any unnecessary additional distress at very a difficult time.

Our phone number is:

01623 622515, ext. 4189 or 4190
