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.


Covid donations

Please note that the Trust is no longer accepting donations of fresh and perishable foods.

We have been incredibly grateful for the huge amount of fresh food donations that we have received throughout the pandemic

There are people in our communities who are hungry and we would encourage you to donate to local foodbanks and other worthy causes.  

Thank you for your support and understanding.

If you have products that you wish to donate, please make contact with the Community Involvement Team, who will be very happy to help identify a group that would benefit from the kind gesture.
