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.


Dr Andy Haynes to re-join Sherwood Forest Hospitals as specialist advisor

Posted Monday, April 19, 2021 8:13 PM

Claire Ward, Acting Sherwood Chair said, “Andy knows our Trust and its people extensively and his time at the ICS has given him an additional perspective that will be of great value to the Board as we navigate our way through the changes across Nottinghamshire. Andy will bring his experience and insight of NHS transformation.  We are pleased to see him return and we are really looking forward to working with him.”
Andy Haynes said, “I am delighted to have the opportunity to re-join the Board at a critical time of change in the wider NHS, when staff well-being has never been so important and as the trust continues to progress on its development path. It will be a pleasure to reconnect with old colleagues and I look forward to meeting new ones in the months to come."
