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.

Sherwood Forest Hospitals’ Remembrance Service for friends, family and loved ones

Posted Tuesday, November 16, 2021 11:09 AM

On Thursday 2 December at 7pm, Sherwood Forest Hospitals’ Chaplaincy team will be hosting a special remembrance service for friends and family members who have recently lost loved ones at the Trust.

Rodney Warden, Chaplain at Sherwood Forest Hospitals, is leading this year’s remembrance service. He said: “Last year we were unable to host our special service due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although COVID is still very much a part of our lives, we recognise how tough it has been for our patients’ family and friends, so we are creating a safe and welcoming environment for people who have recently lost loved ones.

“It has been difficult and challenging to our local community, so this service will enable friends and family members to safely remember and reflect upon the special people in their lives who are sadly no longer with us.

“To ensure we all remain as safe as possible, we are asking people to get in touch with us in advance so we can plan correct and appropriate social distancing for everyone. Thank you.”

The service will be held at St. Philip Neri Catholic Church, 3 Chesterfield Road South, Mansfield, NG19 7AB on Thursday 2 December at 7pm.

Numbers are limited, so please call the Trust’s Faith Centre if you would like to attend the service via 01623 622515 extension 3047.
