Our main Outpatient Department is still located in the North hospital, however, some changes have been made and extra safety measures have been introduced to keep patients and staff as safe as possible.
Access to the main Outpatient Department is now temporarily through the Children's Ward entrance located a short walk from the North car park. It can also be accessed by road for drop off and pick up.
We continue to take all necessary precautions to protect patients and staff from coronavirus (COVID-19) and other virus such as respiratory illnesses and norovirus that circulate.
This includes continuing with good infection control practice including hand hygiene. Hand washing facilities and hand sanitiser is available on arrival and in all waiting areas and screens are in place at the reception desk to give added protection and the area will undergo enhanced cleaning.
If you arrive early for your appointment we ask that you remain outside the hospital and do not enter more than 10 minutes prior to your appointment. This will still allow enough time for you to make your way to the correct area within the hospital.
To help us keep our patients and staff safe, wherever possible, please attend your appointment alone. Exceptions to this are as follows:
If you have been referred by your GP to an Out-Patient clinic for treatment, you can find general information about your outpatient appointment or use a link below for an individual department.
