Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Visiting our hospitals

To help us stop the spread of coronavirus, keep our hospitals running, we’re really sorry that we are not currently allowing visitors in our hospitals.

Outpatient appointments and elective surgery

We are making some temporary changes to our outpatient appointments and non-urgent planned surgery

Maternity services

We've made some additional changes to the way we'll care for you if you're pregnant or in labour.

Finding help

If you have particular questions about COVID-19, try our COVID-19 chat. It's based on guidance from NHS and the British Government, and can help you find answers to commonly asked questions.

Do not attend A&E, Urgent Care or Walk-in centres, or your GP

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

Use this service if:

  • you think you might have coronavirus;
  • in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus;
  • you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.
