Next ยป When you arrive

Stay safe

Please help us to protect other patients, visitors and our staff.

If you are invited to attend for an appointment please wear a face covering when you come to the hospital. Your face covering must cover your face and nose.

Please attend your appointment alone if possible as this helps us to reduce footfall. Your appointment letter or text will advise you of where to go once you arrive at the hospital.

When you enter the hospital your temperature will be checked and you will be asked a few questions. This is known as screening and is aimed at helping us to identify whether you have any symptoms that may suggest you have Covid-19.

If you are found to have symptoms you may be asked to return home, in which case your appointment will be rescheduled.

Seating space in our waiting areas has been reduced in order to enable us to observe social distancing. Please do not therefore arrive more than 5 minutes before your appointment as you will be asked to wait outside. If you have a specific reason why this is likely to prove difficult please let us know.
