Patients and Visitors

Our top priority in the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is to protect our patients, our staff and our community.

In line with the latest Government guidance, from Monday 15th June, all visitors and patients attending an outpatient appointment will be required to wear a face covering.

To help you prepare please read the following guidance before you attend your appointment.

  1. Make sure you have a suitable face covering that you can wear to your appointment. It should cover your nose and mouth, and you should be able to breathe comfortably.
  2. Please arrive at the time your appointment is scheduled. Please do not come early. This will help us maintain social distancing measures.
  3. As we continue to try and limit the number of people visiting our hospitals you will need to attend your appointment unaccompanied. However there are a few examples where patients are allowed to bring a chaperone with them, including:
    * If the patient is a child
    * They lack capacity

If you or anyone in your household have experienced symptoms of coronavirus in the last 14 days, please do not attend your appointment unless you have confirmed it is safe to do so with the relevant department. 


The information in the section is to help you if you are either scheduled to come into hospital for treatment, have an out-patients appointment, require out of hours services, or are planning on visiting someone already in hospital.
