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.




We put the patient at the centre of everything that we do, and it is our aim to make sure that every patient is treated as we would want a member of our own family to be treated.

You can let us know about your experiences of our hospitals and services through our patient experience team, or via the Care Opinion website.

Whether you are coming to one of our sites for an appointment, a simple day-case procedure or something more complicated we hope that these pages are a useful guide of what to expect.
